Median project on East Woodmen Road will impact traffic Monday-Aug. 31

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A landscape renovation project in the median on East Woodmen Road, between Lexington Drive and Rangewood Drive, will require lane closures on Woodmen in both directions Monday-Aug. 31. Facilitated by the Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department, the project will replace the existing landscape material with a more sustainable treatment that includes native grass and plants, hardscape and rock mulch.

The work requires one lane closure on both eastbound and westbound Woodmen for the project duration, plus a second temporary lane closure in both directions from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday, resulting in one open lane each way during this time. Also between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday, no left turns will be permitted from eastbound Woodmen onto Rangewood and from westbound Woodmen onto Lexington.

Drivers are urged to use extra caution in this area for the duration of the project. The timeline is weather dependent.
