El Paso County Public Works will be constructing safety and drainage improvements along the southern portion of Monument Hill Road, including construction of a “free right,” improvements to drainage along Crystal Creek, and road reconstruction.
Due to constraints of the road and the scope of the project, the road will be closed from the intersection of Woodmoor Road to the south entrance of the Monument Hill Church. Work is planned to start on Wednesday, October 17, and extend into early February 2019. Project schedule is dependent on weather and resources.
During the closure, Woodmoor Drive and Deer Creek Road will serve as the detour route for access to the northern portion of Monument Hill Road and Palmer Ridge High School. These are lower speed roads and drivers are encouraged to take alternate routes during construction. Drivers who need to use the detour routes should plan for added travel time through this area.
Drivers are reminded to reduce speeds and to watch for workers, equipment, signs and barricades. El Paso County road maintenance workers wish to thank drivers in advance for their cooperation. Full road closure will accelerate the safe and efficient completion of this project. Funding for this project is provided through PPRTA.
