Bridge Maintenance Project ?? Traffic Impacts: Academy Boulevard Bridge over Platte Avenue
Wednesday, September 03, 2014

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—Traffic will be reduced to two lanes each direction on the Academy Boulevard Bridge over Platte Avenue beginning Sunday, September 7 at 9:00 p.m. and will continue for approximately three weeks.  The lane closure will also prohibit left turns from Academy Boulevard onto Platte Avenue. 

Drivers should expect some delays and will need to use alternate routes to turn onto Platte Avenue.

For the safety and expediency of construction and the safety of the traveling public, the City of Colorado Springs asks motorists to pay close attention to posted speed limits and signs throughout the project area. All construction activities are weather and resource dependent.

This project is funded by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority.
