· Pikes Peak Avenue will continue to be restricted to local access only between Hancock Avenue and Meade Avenue and between Bonfoy Avenue and Printers Parkway
· Union Boulevard traffic will be restricted to a single lane in each direction northbound and southbound for traffic with no right or left turns on to Pikes Peak Avenue.
