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.
Drivers on I-25 could see additional delays in the next couple of weeks, as crews push to complete by July 4 an expansion project on the north side of Colorado Springs.
There will be increased heavy equipment in the area and crews will be pulling extra shifts, including Saturday night June 28.
Some of the construction work will take place behind concrete barriers, but heavy equipment will be coming and going from construction areas.
There will also be single lane closures near Woodmen and Interquest as crews install new guard rails.
Double lane closures should be expected overnight as crews install supports for new signs. Temporary closures will take place during the day while the signs are put up.
Crews are in the final stages of adding a third lane between Highway 105 in Monument and North Gate Blvd.
