Beginning on Sunday, Oct. 26, removal and replacement of the existing concrete paving in the West Victorian intersection will begin. Once the removal has been completed, they will begin placement of the new concrete pavement throughout the intersection beginning Monday, Oct. 27 with an anticipated reopening of the intersection late in the day Wednesday, Oct. 29.
This work will require that the intersection be completely closed from 8 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 26, through approximately 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 29. This will require a complete closure of Mainstreet, with no vehicular traffic on Mainstreet between the west Victorian intersection and Pikes Peak Drive to the west. Pedestrian traffic will be allowed for access to downtown businesses.
ALL of Mainstreet traffic will be diverted to the following detours:
Westbound traffic from East Mainstreet, wanting to use Mainstreet, will be detoured at Pikes Peak to the south. West bound traffic will also be able to turn north on East Victorian and proceed to Longs Way.
Eastbound Mainstreet traffic will be detoured to the south at the Wells Fargo bank entrance through the parking lot area and may either proceed to Rodeo Drive or to Pikes Peak and go north or south on Pikes Peak.
Traffic that is southbound on Longs Way will not be able to get through the West Victorian and Mainstreet intersection, but will still be able to access parking at O’Brien Park, the 20-Mile Building or the Parker Station parking area from either West Victorian or East Victorian.
Please be advised that Mainstreet in the downtown area will not be reopened to traffic until the afternoon on Wednesday, Oct. 29. It is anticipated that both the Victorian loop and Mainstreet will re-open at that time. Please understand that these time frames are weather dependent, but every reasonable effort will be made to meet this schedule.
Detour signing will be in-place as of 7 a.m. on Sunday morning, Oct. 26. Please seek alternate routes for access to Parker Road and to Pine Drive.
Businesses in the downtown area can still be accessed by parking in public areas on Pilgrims Place off Pikes Peak Drive, behind the Parker Station building, the 20-Mile building or O’Brien Park.
