COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- In an effort to make up for lost time due to weather delays, crews will perform night work Sunday through Thursday, from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. This work will occur on Woodmen Road between Union Boulevard and Taos Road. Work will begin Sunday night and continue through Thursday night.

Intermittent Traffic Shifts on Woodmen Road to Occur Week of August 27

During the week of August 27, crews will be performing storm drain and wall work on Woodmen Road that will require multiple traffic shifts on Woodmen Road from east of Academy Boulevard to the intersection of Lexington Drive. Eastbound and westbound traffic will be intermittently shifted to the north and south sides of the road. Motorists should stay alert while driving through the construction area and be aware of signs indicating a shift in traffic alignment.

Daily single lane closures in the eastbound and westbound directions of Woodmen Road from east of Academy Boulevard to the intersection of Lexington Drive will occur Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., for the safe performance of utility work, wall work, earthwork, and paving.
