Woodmen Road Phase 2 Traffic Update Traffic Impacts on Union Boulevard and Woodmen Road

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.-- From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, and Monday through April 20, Union Boulevard will have a single lane closure through the Woodmen Road intersection for concrete work. Additionally, the southbound Union Boulevard right turn lane to westbound Woodmen Road will be closed during this time frame. Motorists will be detoured to Dublin Boulevard, then to Academy Boulevard to reconnect with Woodmen Road.

Ongoing Traffic Impacts

Woodmen Road has been reduced to two through lanes in each direction between east of Academy Boulevard and Lexington Drive through the remainder of the project, estimated to end in May.  One through lane, both eastbound and westbound, will be closed 24/7 for the safe performance of concrete work. The closed lane may either be the inside or outside through lane, depending on the work needed.

The lane closures will not change the flow of traffic through the Continuous Flow Intersection at Woodmen Road and Union Boulevard, but motorists should expect slight delays.  Daytime single lane closures may continue on northbound or southbound Union Boulevard and Lexington Drive to complete final work.  Motorists should follow construction signs.

The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph through the work zone. Normal work hours are Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
