Austin Bluffs Down To One Lane This Weekend

By  | 

If you plan on hitting the roads this weekend there is a spot that you might want to avoid. That's Austin Bluffs between Stanton and Meadow Lane, by UCCS in Colorado Springs.

Construction workers will take Austin Bluffs down to one lane in both directions in between those intersections, starting at 6:00 AM Saturday morning. They plan on opening the lanes back up around 6:00 AM Monday morning.

The Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority says that they are going to widen Austin Bluffs from four lanes to six lanes in front of UCCS. Also, they plan on widening the road between Union and Beverly, and Barnes and Old Farm.

They say the project will cost around $22.5 million, and should be done by December 2014.
