Bridge Maintenance Project ?? Traffic ImpactsAcademy Boulevard Bridge over Platte Avenue
Tuesday, October 21, 2014

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Due to weather delays, the project will continue to affect motorists on Platte Avenue from 9:00am to 3:00pm on Oct. 21 through Oct. 23 as work underneath the bridge is completed.  Traffic in the westbound direction will be reduced to one through lane to facilitate that work.  The lane closure will shift to different lanes as the work progresses.

Drivers should expect some delays.

There will be no more lane closures on Academy Boulevard as part of the bridge maintenance project.

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.

We want to thank all motorists for their patience during the duration of the project.

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