The Woodmen Road Corridor Improvement Project extends along Woodmen Road from I-25 to US 24, a distance of approximately 11 miles. The purpose of this project is to develop a roadway improvement concept that meets the safety and capacity needs of the corridor.
The City of Colorado Springs and El Paso County worked together to develop a National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) Environmental Assessment (EA) for the project which was, a necessary first step to make use of the federal funds available to both the City and County for Woodmen Road.
The City portion of the project is from I-25 to Powers Blvd., approximately five miles, was implemented in two phases.
Phase 1 of the project improved the Woodmen Road and Academy Boulevard intersection to a grade-separated interchange and widened about one and a half miles of Woodmen Road to six lanes from east of I-25 to east of Academy Boulevard. Construction of Phase 1 was completed in 2012.
Phase 2, the current phase between Stinson Road and Lexington Drive, completes the widening of Woodmen Road so that there are 6-lanes from I-25 to State Highway 21 (Powers Boulevard). This phase of the project includes a CFI at Woodmen Road and Union Boulevard intersection.
