City to share updates to Camp Creek Drainage Improvement Plan Tuesday

31st Street corridor refinements to include roundabout, roadway realignments

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—The public is invited to learn about updates to elements of the Camp Creek Drainage Improvement Plan at an open house Tuesday. Developed collaboratively in 2014 by the City of Colorado Springs and the community, the Camp Creek Drainage Improvement Plan includes solutions to address flooding and erosion issues in the drainage corridor along 31st Street. An update on elements of the plan that have been implemented and information about a few refinements will be the focus of an open house scheduled for:

Tuesday, June 5

Holmes Middle School Cafeteria

2455 Mesa Road

5:30 – 7 p.m. Open House

6 – 6:30 p.m. Presentation and Discussion

Refinements to the plan to be reviewed at the open house are:

· Construction of a roundabout at the intersection of 31st Street and Fontanero Street

· Extension of the underground Camp Creek culvert to north of Valley Street

· Realignment of the Water Street and Pike Street intersections with 31st Street.

People interested in attending the open house are encouraged to stop by Holmes Middle School cafeteria any time between 5:30 and 7 p.m. to view displays illustrating the project updates and refinements, and to visit with project engineers about the plan. From 6 to 6:30 p.m., there will be a brief presentation, followed by questions and discussion.


Since 2014, the City has made intermediate repairs to the 31st Street concrete drainage channel, has built 32 channel stabilization structures along portions of the Creek located in the Garden of the Gods and Rock Ledge Ranch, and has completed design of the large stormwater detention facility to be constructed adjacent to 30th Street near the northern boundary of Garden of the Gods.

The Camp Creek corridor extends through the Garden of the Gods and Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, along 31st Street through the Pleasant Valley neighborhood south to a confluence with Fountain Creek near U.S. Highway 24.

Those interested in the Camp Creek project can find all materials from the 2013-2014 community involvement process, eight newsletters about the project, and other related information on the City’s website at www.ColoradoSprings.gov/CampCreek.
