2C roadwork locations on Westside listed through Aug. 7

       Here are the locations scheduled by City Public Works for 2C road upgrades on the Westside during the time frame of July 25-Aug. 7.
In a photo taken July 18 from the Camera Obscura parking lot in the Garden of the Gods, a new layer of pavement is evident on the northbound side of Ridge Road, while the southbound side has not yet gotten its turn. All the streets in the Garden are being milled and then paved this month as part of the city's 2C program.

       Included is overnight work (8 p.m.-8 a.m.) on the Garden of the Gods streets. During this time, the park itself will be closed, as will the roads.
       Work locations:
       - Monroe Street from Sage Street to Seventh Street - digout.
       - Wheeler Avenue from Westend Avenue to 21st Street - concrete work.
       - Gateway Road from 30th Street to Juniper Way Loop - overlay.
       - Juniper Way Loop at Gateway Road - overlay.
       - Garden Drive from Juniper Way Loop to park entrance - overlay.
       - Garden Lane at Garden Drive - overlay.
       Note that there could be traffic impacts at any time in the work locations, including the temporary loss of a through lane or even a detour around the site.
       2C was the name of the city-sponsored ballot measure that voters approved in last November's election. It established a .62 percent sales tax over a five-year span, dedicated to road improvements.
       The upgrades consist of concrete upgrades (where applicable) and new paving on a prioritized list of road segments. A city website with 2C information can be found at https://coloradosprings.gov/public-works/page/right-way-infrastructure- maintenance-funding.
