There's something truly terrible about being stuck in a traffic jam on a Saturday.
And that's why we at the Indy want to help you avoid feeling angry and homicidal on your damn day off. Word of advice: avoid Platte Avenue between Union Boulevard and Hancock Avenue on Saturday.
Platte Avenue CLOSED Saturday
East Platte Avenue through central Colorado Springs between Union Blvd. on the east and Hancock Ave. on the west will be closed Saturday, Aug 18, from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., as part of the construction of safety improvements in the area. Work crews will be completing paving and re-striping of the roadway.
Detours will be in place and motorists should use alternate routes if possible.
A small lane closure will continue throughout the rest of the week with the project scheduled to be completed by Thursday, August 23. All scheduling is weather dependent. Motorists should pay attention to message boards in the area that will warn of traffic changes, and plan alternate routes accordingly.
