U.S. 24 environmental assessment available for review

Posted By on Mon, May 28, 2012 at 3:52 PM


In the future, west-bound U.S. Highway 24 could receive a major revamping.

But first, the environmental impact of those changes must be considered. The state recently released the environmental assessment of the proposed project and the public has until July 11 to comment on the findings.

The document can be viewed online at, or you can grab a copy of it in person at one of several locations.

A public hearing will be held June 11, from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Community Partnership for Child Development office at 2330 Robinson St. in Colorado Springs. The meeting will include a presentation on the proposed alternative.
