Academy-Cottonwood Project Impacts Tuesday Overnight Lane Closure Tuesday for Bridge Work

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo —  The previously planned deck pour for the early hours of Wednesday morning has been rescheduled.  The right lane of northbound Academy Boulevard will now be closed from 11:00 p.m. Wednesday to 5:00 a.m. Thursday between Dublin Boulevard and York Road/Brookwood Ave.

That segment of Academy Boulevard is already reduced to two lanes in each direction while the Academy bridge across Cottonwood Creek is being rebuilt.  The additional lane closure is necessary while crews pour the concrete deck for the eastern half of the new bridge.

Drivers are urged to use extreme caution due to narrow lanes in the work zone.

In addition to replacing the aging bridge across Cottonwood Creek, the project will complete an important link in the Cottonwood Creek Trail.  The project is scheduled for completion in early 2019.

All construction is weather and resource-dependent.
