Traffic Impacts: Fillmore Corridor Improvement Project
Monday, May 06, 2013

Monday, May 6, 2013

On Monday, May 6, night work will be taking place on west Fillmore Street from just west of Straus Lane east to just east of Parker Street.  East and westbound traffic on Fillmore will be down to one lane for new striping alignment of the westbound lanes.  After striping is complete westbound traffic will shift to the south into the current left turn lane.  This will allow for use of the current right lane for construction.  This will be a permanent alignment of the roadway through June when work on that side of the road is complete.   Work will take place from 8 p.m. to approximately 6 a.m.

Access to businesses and residents will remain open at all times.

For information or questions on construction impacts, please call Blue Ridge Construction at (719) 578-5225 EXT 10.

The Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority was formed when voters in Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Green Mountain Falls and El Paso County approved a one percent sales tax in November of 2004 to address infrastructure and transit needs in the region.  The tax revenue is divided into three categories: 55 percent for capital improvements (such as this project), 35 percent for maintenance, and 10 percent for transit.
