Detour Begins July 19 through August 3
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Starting Thursday, 6 a.m. Pikes Peak Avenue will close between S. Institute Street and Hancock Avenue to facilitate the installation of a portion of new underground utilities and roadway work in the Pikes Peak and Union Intersection associated with the Pikes Peak Avenue Reconstruction project.
All detour routing will be managed by traffic control signs and devices. Motorists will be directed to detours using alternate roads:
· Eastbound Pikes Peak Avenue traffic will be diverted to S. Institute Street to E. Cucharras Street and reconnects with Pikes Peak Avenue at S. Hancock Avenue.
· Westbound Pikes Peak traffic will be diverted to from S. Hancock Avenue to E. Platte Avenue to S. Institute Street then back to Pikes Peak Avenue.
The detour is expected to last for approximately 2 weeks. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
The Pikes Peak Avenue roadway and its utilities are 60-100 years old and reconstruction will improve safety and travel by creating a smooth road surface and replacing water, gas, and sewer lines.
