Bridge Maintenance Project – Traffic Impacts
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Removal of the pedestrian bridge over Fontanero Street will begin on Saturday April 28. West Fontanero Street from the I-25 off-ramp to Recreation Way will be closed for the removal of the pedestrian bridge east of the interstate.
On Sunday, April 29, Fontanero will be reduced to one lane in each direction while the crews continue with the remaining work. Deconstruction is estimated to continue until May 4, at which time the road will be opened to traffic.
The project includes:
· Removal of the pedestrian bridge
· Removal of the support pier
· Removal of the two abutments at each end
· Concrete patching at the median
Drivers should plan on taking alternate routes during the project. All construction activities are weather and resource dependent, and this project is funded by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority.
