Temporary shuttle plans for Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain

If construction starts as planned on the new Pikes Peak Summit House this summer, the City is looking at temporary solutions – like a free-to-the-public shuttle system – to ease the parking disruption and highway congestion that will be caused by the construction. The shuttle would allow visitors to drive part way up before taking a shuttle to the summit. The No. 1 goal is to safely provide visitors with as close to the same experience as possible while work is underway. As soon as the new Summit House is complete, it is expected that normal traffic patterns will return to Pikes Peak Highway. More details on the shuttle system, including considerations for persons with disabilities, will be available in May.

The new Summit House will replace the original structure, which was built in 1960. Expected to be finished by fall 2020, the new Summit House will deliver a vastly upgraded visitor experience to better accommodate the record number of visitors who are enjoying Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain each year. Upgrades include an improved kitchen and expanded dining facilities, better retail space and an interactive education area focused on the history, significance and geology of Pikes Peak.
