A stormwater project has temporarily closed South 21st Street in both directions between Rio Grande Street and Argus Boulevard.
An unofficial city estimate puts the duration of the work through Nov. 19.
The access to the El Paso County Dog Park, which is just north of Rio Grande, remains open. Traffic heading south can detour using Rio Grande. Northbound motorists need to make their way to Eighth Street.
According to Colorado Springs Public Works information, the project was pre-planned, and features installing 80 feet of new 36-inch-wide pipe and replacing/repairing asphalt and concrete in the vicinity.
The contractor is DRX, which bid $63,267 for the job. Funding is coming from the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority.
