  • ROAD CLOSURE - Marksheffel Road will be closed between Drennan Road and the Peterson Air Force Base (PAFB) East Gate beginning May 9, 2016. This 3.5 mile section of Marksheffel Road will be closed to remove the old road and reconstruct the new roadway. Traffic will be detoured around this closed section via Bradley Road and Powers Blvd. Access to and from PAFB East Gate will be maintained from the north. The road will remain closed until the construction of the new roadway is completed, currently anticipated to be around September 9, 2016. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we construct the new roadway.
  • Intersection Work at Marksheffel & Fontaine – Beginning Friday, June 10, work will commence on the reconstruction of the Fontaine intersection at Marksheffel. This work will require lane shifts to accomplish the reconstruction of the pavement and will be done one quadrant at a time, beginning with the southeast quadrant. The intersection will remain open, but lanes will be shifted to accomplish the work. Traffic control will be established to define the appropriate lane shifts. These shifts will require adjustments to the signal heads. During these adjustments, flaggers will be present to control traffic through the intersection. This work will be phased over the next several weeks. Traffic control and flaggers will be utilized as appropriate. Please use caution when driving through the area and pay attention to traffic pattern.
