Traffic and Neighborhood Access Impacts
Sept. 12 – Sept. 29, 2008
Lane Reductions and Full Closures of Union Boulevard
Drivers should expect detours and delays, and use alternate routes when possible.
Motorists should expect traffic impacts ranging from lane closures to full overnight and weekend closures of Union Boulevardas construction crews continue work at the intersection, speeding toward completion. Most of this work will be completed at night and on weekends to minimize inconvenience to the traveling public.
Please pay close attention to the lane configurations throughout the project, as they will be changing with the new construction. Also, for the safety of the traveling public and the construction crews, please abide by the 25 MPH posted speed limits on the overpass and throughout the entire project through its completion.
Ramp traffic onto Union Boulevardfrom the Austin Bluffs overpass has been experiencing delays and backups. We thank you for your patience as construction is still necessary to complete these ramps; in the meantime the ramps will remain open to one lane of traffic. Drivers should expect delays during this time and use alternate routes when possible.
Lawrence Construction and the City of Colorado Springs ask motorists continue to be aware of the impacts and pay close attention to the signage, project advisories and/or the project hotline for more details as these construction activities continue.
