COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A busy intersection in Colorado Springs will be closed overnight this week. All lanes of South Academy Boulevard at the I-25 bypass will be closed.

Westbound lanes will be closed from 6 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. through Thursday and eastbound lanes will be closed from 7 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. through Friday.
