Deerfield Hills Fire Lane Project 2021

Project Information

The Colorado Springs Fire Department and the Colorado Springs Police Department are working to improve service delivery to your neighborhood. The Deerfield Hills neighborhood has limited access to homes by emergency services due to the lack of available parking. Fire lanes are a community improvement that will provide this access for our police and fire departments to assist you in the event of a life-threatening emergency. Crews will begin placing fire lane paint on the pavement/roads in late March 2021.
