COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs Utilities said Tuesday that all lanes of Garden of the Gods Rd will open on Wednesday at 6 a.m.

CSU said crews and contractors have been working around the clock and the last bit of new asphalt will cure overnight and be ready by Wednesday morning.

Eastbound lanes are still closed but two westbound lanes were reopened Saturday.

Last Tuesday afternoon, water flooded across Garden of the Gods Br between Chestnut St and Rusina Rd on the west side of Interstate 25 after a water main broke.

Crews had to dig up the road to locate the 24-inch mainline connection that was the source of the problem.

Many businesses in the area had to use alternate sources of water but CSU said they have restored water to most of them.
