Share this page:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Repairs to the Chelton Road Bridge over Sand Creek near the intersection of Murray Boulevard and Chelton Road will begin Wednesday, March 20.

The project includes:

  • Excavation of roadway
  • Installation of a waterproof membrane
  • Asphalt and concrete revisions
  • Guardrail remediation
  • Concrete patching to the inside of the box culvert

Beginning at 7:00 a.m., all traffic will be moved to the south side of the bridge. There will be one lane of traffic open in both directions, and the speed limit will be reduced. This traffic pattern will be switched to the opposite side of the bridge when work is complete on the north side. The traffic control allows crews to excavate to the top of the concrete box culvert and perform all work on the bridge. The traffic pattern is expected remain in place until mid-June.

Travelers should plan on taking alternate routes during the project.

For the safety and expediency of construction and the safety of the traveling public, the City of Colorado Springs ask travelers to pay close attention to posted speed limits and signs throughout the project area. All construction activities are weather and resource dependent.

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