2C roadwork locations on Westside listed through Aug. 21

       Here are the locations scheduled by City Public Works for 2C road upgrades on the Westside during the time frame of Aug. 8-Aug. 21.
       Work locations:
       - San Miguel Street from Glen Avenue to dead end - concrete work.
       - Glen Avenue from Uintah Street to dead end - concrete work.
       - Wheeler Avenue from Westend Avenue to 21st Street - concrete work.
       The paving of the Garden of the Gods streets was completed in July, with new striping to be painted on during overnight work scheduled through Aug. 12. The park streets had been closed for the overnight paving work, but will be allowed to remain open during the striping, a city press release states.
       In general, 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.
