All westbound lanes of Woodmen Rd. under the interstate have reopened Saturday night. Colorado Springs Utilities says all lanes on Woodmen after the I-25 overpass will remain closed until 5 a.m. Monday morning. 

CSU said the pipes have been repaired, so that isn’t the issue. The lanes had to be dug up and new concrete had to be poured over the damaged area. It takes a while for the concrete to cure. 

The road has been closed since 3 a.m. last Sunday morning, cutting off access to southbound I-25 to one of Colorado Springs’ busiest roads.

Drivers that need to access SB lanes of I-25 should take the N. Academy or N. Nevada entrance ramps. If drivers need to access areas west of I-25 they can continue north to the Academy exit where they can then take the on-ramp back onto SB I-25 and exit onto Woodmen, west of the construction area.
