COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.-- This week, crews will shift eastbound traffic on Woodmen Road between Taos Drive and Lexington Drive approximately 50 feet to the south to allow for work on the existing roadway. Motorists traveling westbound will not be affected. This work is weather dependent.

Intermittent Traffic Shifts on Woodmen Road to Occur Week of July 23

During the week of July 23, 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 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, July 24 through Friday, July 28 for the safe performance of utility work, wall work, earthwork, and paving.

Throughout the week of July 23, crews will be performing work in the intersection of Woodmen Road and Union Blvd. This work will start at approximately 4 a.m. and continue during normal daytime hours.
