Bridge Repairs - Traffic Impacts

North Nevada Avenue bridges over Union Pacific Railroad and Van Buren Ditch 

On Friday, September 6th,  between 7am and 1pm, northbound and southbound Nevada Avenue north of Jackson Street and south of Fillmore Street will experience temporary traffic disruptions as cement trucks enter and exit the construction site for placement of the new concrete bridge deck. Drivers are advised to expect delays and use alternate routes when possible. 

The project is anticipated to last for the next 8 months with the south bound bridge being closed for approximately two additional months.

For the safety and expediency of construction and the safety of the traveling public, the City of Colorado Springs asks motorists to pay close attention to posted speed limits and signs through the project area. All construction activities are weather and resource dependent.

Media please contact Aaron Egbert at 385-5465 with any questions.

The project is funded by the City of Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority.
