COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Some type of incident forced the closure of a roadway in Castle Rock Tuesday night at a scene that the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) only described as having a “heavy police presence.”

Just after 9:20 p.m., CDOT announced an off-ramp was blocked at Meadows Parkway just to the south of the Outlets at Castle Rock. Soon after, police announced the entire overpass where Founders Parkway runs into Meadows Parkway was closed for an investigation.

At about 9:45 p.m. police provided a brief update stating the westbound portion of the Founder overpass was back open but only one eastbound lane was open.

No other details were immediately shared on the investigation taking place. 11 News has reached out to officials Wednesday morning and will update this article when we learn more.
