With a combo of windy, dry and warm conditions for our Wednesday afternoon, a Red Flag Warning has been issued for all counties along and east of the I-25 corridor between 12pm and 7pm this afternoon. PLEASE no outside burning, and if you see smoke, report it as soon as possible! Head over to the Weather tab for more information on the rest of the week.
Road work starting Thursday night could have a major impact for how people get around Colorado Springs this coming weekend.
Fillmore on the west side of I-25 will be closed beginning Thursday night and running through early Monday morning. Though only closing a portion of the road, with Fillmore a significant connecting route for people living in several west side neighborhoods, as well as running past a high school and a King Soopers, this closure could create headaches for those who use Fillmore off of the interstate.
The closure ends before Centennial. Crews recommend using Garden of the Gods Road to Centennial and back to Fillmore as a detour.
The closure starts at 8 p.m. Thursday and ends at 6 a.m. Monday.
