Lane Closures to Impact Traffic Along Powers Blvd & Airport Rd

September 29, 2016 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - COLORADO SPRINGS – From October 3rd to 10th, lane closures, lane shifts and a detour are expected on Airport Road and Stewart Avenue, as the Colorado Department of Transportation continues widening and road improvements along Powers Boulevard and Airport Road.

Mid-week, a lane closure is planned on eastbound Airport Road as installation of the new Powers Boulevard/Airport Road traffic signals begins. Around the weekend, one-lane traffic (eastbound) is scheduled on Airport Road, and a detour of westbound Stewart Avenue will be implemented, while westbound traffic will be diverted to northbound Powers onto Platte Avenue (temporarily).

It is expected that drivers entering and exiting Peterson Air Force Base along Airport Road and Stewart Avenue may experience significant delays. Variable Message Signs will be installed informing travelers of traffic conditions on Airport Road and Stewart Avenue during the paving operation. Flaggers will also be present at various designated intersections to assist with the business access on Industrial Loop during the work.

Heavy traffic and delays are expected. Alternative routes are advised.
