Woodmen Dr and Union Blvd intersection closed from Friday night to Monday morning

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The intersection of Woodmen Road and Union Boulevard will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, weather permitting.

Construction crews will be lowering the intersection two to three feet to reduce grade and increase visibility, thus improving overall driving safety.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid this intersection altogether, but uniformed traffic control officers will be on site to direct traffic movements to the detours.

Drivers will not be able to cross Woodmen Road using Union Boulevard, there will be no left turns allowed at any time, and only limited right turns will be allowed.

Drivers on Union Boulevard will be detoured on Dublin Boulevard or Briargate Boulevard. Drivers on Woodmen Road will be detoured on Academy Boulevard, Lexington Drive, or Rangewood Drive.

After completion of the project, Woodmen Road will go back to normal, and Union Boulevard traffic will be shifted from the east side of the road to the west.
