Segment 1 - Closure of UCCS Entrance at Meadow Lane and Austin Bluffs Parkway Lane Reductions

The Meadow Lane entrance to the UCCS campus remains closed until August 6 at 5 p.m. when the intersection will reopen to traffic. Work will then begin on the UCCS west entrance (access to parking garage via the roundabout).  This access will remain open, however, lane reductions will be in place on the entrance road.

Segment 2 -Temporary Access Changes – Austin Bluffs Parkway at American Dr. and Austin Bluffs Parkway Lane Reductions       

Eastbound Austin Bluffs Parkway traffic will be reduced from three lanes to one at American Drive/Meadowland Blvd. beginning Saturday, August 3 at 2 a.m. through Monday, August 5 at 6 a.m. to accommodate construction of a new storm sewer. American Drive will be closed at Austin Bluffs Parkway and access across the intersection between Meadowland Blvd. and American Drive will be closed. Traffic on Meadowland will be open with lane reductions in place. Drivers making right turns from Meadowland Blvd. to Austin Bluffs Parkway should access westbound Austin Bluffs Parkway via Goldenrod Drive. Detours will direct traffic around the work area.

Motorists should expect delays and are strongly advised to use alternate routes during this planned work. Posted signage, cones and flaggers will be present to help motorists safely navigate the area.
