A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
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.
