Bridge Inspection - Traffic Impacts
Monday, April 28, 2014

Academy Boulevard Bridge over Platte Avenue

On Tuesday, April 29th, beginning at 9:00 am, the right, northbound, lane will be closed on the bridge that carries Academy Boulevard over Platte Avenue.  The lane closure will reduce northbound traffic from three to two lanes for a bridge inspection in preparation for a future project. The lane closure will last approximately 6 hours.  It is anticipated that all northbound lanes will be open to traffic by 3:30 pm. 

Drivers should expect some delays and use alternate routes when possible.

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

This project is funded by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority.
