Bridge Inspection To Force Lane Closures On Platte Tuesday

A portion of one busy Springs road will be shut down for six hours Tuesday.

The city says there will be lane restrictions on eastbound Platte Avenue, just east of Wahsatch, from 9 a.m. until noon, then shift to the westbound lanes from noon until 3 p.m. For the first three hours, eastbound Platte will be down to one lane, then after 12 p.m. westbound Platte will be down to a single lane.

The lane restrictions are so that crews can conduct a routine bridge inspection.

Drivers should expect delays and use an alternate route if possible.

The project is funded by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority.
