COLORADO SPRINGS — North Academy Boulevard from East San Miguel Street to East La Salle Street was closed to one lane for much of Thursday.

This was caused by a water main break and a large hole in the road reported on Twitter by Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) around 5 a.m. on Thursday.

As of 8:45 p.m. Colorado Springs Utilities was reporting that all lanes on North Academy Boulevard have been reopened and water service has been restored.

At this time, it is still unclear as to what caused the water main break. To stay up to date with all outages, visit the Colorado Springs Utilities Outage Map.
