COLORADO SPRINGS — Be prepared for major delays and detours starting Friday night around the intersection of N Academy Boulevard and Dublin Road in Colorado Springs due to a major project to replace a water main.
Colorado Springs Utilities crews will close off the intersection to thru traffic starting at 7 p.m. Friday night. Drivers will still be able to take right turns at the intersection, but as you can imagine the project will cause major backups.
Plan ahead to avoid the area altogether by using Woodmen Rd to the north, Vickers Dr to the south, or Union Boulevard to the east. These detours will significantly impact your travel time.
Entryways to businesses at the N Academy and Dublin Rd will remain open.
According to Colorado Springs Utilities, the water mains being replaced were installed in the 1970s. This construction is taking place ahead of planned 2C paving work.
