COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.— Westbound vehicular and bicycle traffic on Platte Avenue will be reduced temporarily to one lane Tuesday, August 3 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the removal of guardrail and the installation of temporary barrier on the bridge. Traffic will return to two lanes westbound by mid-afternoon, weather and resource dependent.
All business access will remain open throughout construction. Bicyclists and pedestrians are reminded of the restricted access around the site during construction.
Platte Avenue is one of the city’s main east/west mobility corridors and the new bridge will accommodate future growth along the corridor by providing additional lanes on Platte Avenue, along with signalizing the intersection at Space Center Drive. Funding for the project totals approximately $14 million, funded in part by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority and a federal grant.
