June 24, 2024 – Starting on Monday, July 1, El Paso County will begin construction on Vollmer Rd at Hardin Rd (between Shoup Rd and Burgess Rd) to remove a section of existing roadway and widen the road. The goal of the project is to add left turn lanes at the intersection of Vollmer Rd and Hardin Rd.

The road work will be completed in two phases (north and south sides of Hardin Rd) and is expected to be completed in approximately 3 to 4 weeks, weather permitting.

Closure: Vollmer Rd will be closed to all through traffic and the only access will be to the school on the west side of the road and residents on Hardin. Access to residents and businesses before and after the work zone along Vollmer Rd will still be open.

Safety Reminders:

  • Reduce speeds in work zone
  • Watch for workers, equipment, signs, and barricades.

El Paso County wishes to thank drivers in advance for their cooperation.
