COLORADO SPRINGS – Some good news for commuters on Monday morning. Two westbound lanes of Garden of the Gods Rd. are open again following a water main break last week. Crews were able to reopen the two lanes between North Chestnut street and Rusina road Saturday. A spokesperson says it may be midweek before eastbound lanes are reopened in the area of the break. The city says a lot depends on the availability of materials needed to finish the repair and repave the road.
Another sinkhole has also popped up in the Springs. Colorado Springs police say traffic on North Union Blvd is being diverted after a sinkhole was reported. The street was closed at Tochle Dr. Sunday night.
Drivers in the area are being asked to avoid the roadway and take an alternate route. A construction entrance at North Union and Old Ranch Rd was also opened as an alternate way around the sinkhole.
