COLORADO SPRINGS — Starting Tuesday night, you can expect a lot of traffic congestion in the Ivywild neighborhood.
The City of Colorado Springs is starting a construction project to put in a roundabout with the goal of improving safety and traffic flow.
The roundabout will be constructed at the five point intersection of South Tejon Street, Cascade Avenue, Ramona Avenue, and Cheyenne Boulevard.
The full closure of the intersection will take place on Tuesday September 3 at 8 p.m. through 7 a.m. on Wednesday, September 4. The purpose is to remove the existing traffic signals, conduct underground utility work and transition the intersection into a four-way stop.
When the intersection opens Wednesday morning, there will be a four-way stop in place until the roundabout is complete, which the city expects will happen in early 2020.
Cascade Avenue, north of the intersection, will be closed to thru-traffic through the duration.
On Wednesday only, southbound Tejon Street and eastbound Cheyenne Boulevard will be reduced to one lane to complete overnight work.
The city said you should expect delays and take alternate routes.
This project is part of many transportation improvements in the South Nevada Urban Renewal and Ivywild areas.
