Drivers Should Use Caution Watch for Signage and Expect Minor Delays as Project Continues
Construction crews have now completed work on the west half of the Marksheffel Road at Colorado Highway 94 are now beginning work on the east side of the intersection. All traffic on Marksheffel between Space Village and US 24 is now being shifted to the newly completed west side of the intersection on the new pavement.
Work on the east half of the Marksheffel/Colorado 94 intersection requires closure of 94 between the newly finished west half of intersection and Space Village. During this closure, both east bound and west bound traffic will be detoured to Space Village to get to and from the east portion of SH 94 from Marksheffel. Construction of the east half of the intersection is anticipated to take about 1 ½ weeks subject to weather conditions.
El Paso County Public Works is coordinating construction schedules with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) as this portion of the project goes through intersection with state maintained Colorado Highway 94.
El Paso County appreciates drivers’ patience and understanding. Short term closures and detours make it possible to complete construction work in shorter period of time with reduced risk to both public and worker safety. Travelers are advised to pay attention to flaggers and detour signs throughout the region as construction activity increases with warmer weather.
The Marksheffel Road South Improvement project is funded by the voter approved Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority. The contract for improvements to the 11-mile corridor between U.S. 24 and Link Road was awarded to Wildcat Construction in November 2015 and construction in various areas of the corridor has been underway for the past year. The project is anticipated to be completed by the summer of 2017.
El Paso County Public Works is responsible for the maintenance of more than 2,100 miles of public roadway, ranging from major thoroughfares in urban areas to rural gravel roads and neighborhood streets and cul-de-sacs.
