Construction began on the Austin Bluffs Parkway Corridor project on June 17, 2013. At that time, Segment 1 (Nevada Ave. to Union Blvd.) of the three segment project was scheduled for 16 months with an anticipated completion date of September 30, 2014. While final landscaping will occur in Spring 2015, a revised schedule allows for all six lanes of Austin Bluffs Parkway between Nevada Ave. and Union Blvd. to open to traffic by November 30, 2014.

Construction work already visible in the corridor included early relocation of existing utilities by Colorado Springs Utilities and Century Link in advance of roadway construction. Initial roadway construction activities will include locating existing utilities and installing project construction signs along the project corridor. Prior to starting each phase of construction, the project team will communicate and coordinate details of upcoming work to area businesses and homeowners. Access to businesses and homes will be maintained at all times.
This $22.5M construction project, funded entirely by PPRTA.
