The intersection of S. 7th Street and W. Cucharras Street closes for four weeks beginning Aug. 14 for construction of a roundabout at the intersection.
Local driveways will remain accessible during this closure. Through-traffic will be detoured via Colorado Avenue and S. 8th Street.
The roundabout will improve safety and neighborhood traffic flow. In 2022, the City of Colorado Springs Traffic Engineering department engaged the neighborhood about ongoing traffic concerns, and determined a roundabout would be the best tool to manage traffic concerns at the intersection.
This project will be funded by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Agency funds (PPRTA) funds.
