A section of Shooks Run Trail between Lilac and Uintah streets will be affected by construction as Colorado Springs Utilities replaces an aging underground electric line. The trail runs north and south, generally east of downtown Colorado Springs. The first phase begins this week and will close the trail between Lilac and Jackson streets. Construction will be phased over the next several months so that only a few blocks of trail will be closed to the public at a time. Construction will move from north to south.
Trail is also closed for construction at Fountain Blvd.
While work is underway, trail users are asked to remember that heavy construction equipment and workers will be operating in the trail corridor. The active construction area will be defined with fencing and signage, please reduce speeds and use caution around vehicles, equipment and work crews.
