End date set for Manitou Ave Project

Posted: Updated:

The Manitou Avenue Overlay Project is coming to a close, but even though there's a new end date in site drivers can still expect some lane closures.

All week long from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. there will be lane closures in place on both eastbound and westbound Manitou Ave. The lane restrictions will be in place from Hwy 24 to City Hall, but this isn't the only closure.  

The entrance to the Manitou Springs Pool and Fitness center on Manitou Ave. will also be closed, while crews work to replace curb and gutter. Drivers can use the other entrance at Garden of the Gods Place. This will be one of the final steps in the project which included new paving, striping, additional parking in Manitou and fixing the many potholes. 

"I think it's going to be a little bit safer without the potholes," said CDOT Engineer Dan Hunt. "It was just a maintenance nightmare for CDOT to go out and fix the potholes constantly."

The new project end date is this Friday. CDOT tells us they hope to have this all wrapped up in time for July 4th weekend.
