A “Continuous Flow” Intersection
This project is a long overdue improvement to one of the busiest intersections in North Colorado Springs, and continues the work started several years ago that saw the overpass constructed for Woodmen Rd over Academy Blvd. In this second phase of the Woodmen Road improvement project, the intersection of Woodmen & Union will see the addition of what is known as a “Continuous Flow Intersection”.
Check back to this page as it will be updated with ongoing information from the contractor.

Woodmen Road Phase 2 Traffic Update
May 17 through May 25
Woodmen Road and Union Boulevard Impacts
Thursday, May 17th, from 8:00 p.m. to Midnight, and Saturday, May 19th, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the intersection of Woodmen Road and Union Boulevard will be reduced to one lane in all directions for concrete repair work.
Please note: There are additional City of Colorado Springs construction projects, unrelated to the Woodmen Road Phase 2 Project, commencing adjacent to the Woodmen Road project on Lexington, Shrider, Fuller and Tecumseh roads. Resident questions regarding construction on those roads may call the City of Colorado Springs City Public Works Operations and Maintenance Division at 714-385-5934.
Ongoing Traffic Impacts
Woodmen Road has been reduced to two through lanes in each direction between east of Academy Boulevard and Lexington Drive through the remainder of the project, estimated to end in May. One through lane, both eastbound and westbound, will be closed 24/7 for the safe performance of concrete work. The closed lane may either be the inside or outside through lane, depending on the work needed.
The lane closures will not change the flow of traffic through the Continuous Flow Intersection at Woodmen Road and Union Boulevard, but motorists should expect slight delays. Daytime single lane closures may continue on northbound or southbound Union Boulevard and Lexington Drive to complete final work. Motorists should follow construction signs.
The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph through the work zone. Normal work hours are Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
