Academy Boulevard/Cottonwood Creek Project Impacts Week of March 5


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo – Commuters on Academy Boulevard may encounter left lane closures in each direction between Dublin Boulevard and Woodmen Road the week of March 5. The lane closures are needed for utility relocations prior to the start of major construction on the Academy Boulevard bridge crossing Cottonwood Creek.

The project will replace the aging bridge with a modern structure up to current standards, improve pedestrian safety by adding sidewalk on the east side of Academy Boulevard where it crosses the creek, and fill a gap in the Cottonwood Creek Trail between Academy and Vincent Drive.  Work is expected to continue through 2018.

All construction is weather and resource-dependent.  Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes.
