2C Paving Starts on North Carefree Circle

The longest consecutive stretch of roadway to be paved in 2018 with 2C funding is now underway on N Carefree Circle. It will be paved in segments from Academy Boulevard to the eastern city limit. Some updates on the project:
  • This week, Rio Vista Drive to Homestead Trail is limited to one lane in each direction, with traffic shifted to the outside lanes.
  • Beginning Sunday (Sept. 16), there will be extensive work performed on N Carefree from Rio Vista to Oro Blanco Drive. All traffic will be shifted to the south side of the road, maintaining one lane of travel in each direction.
  • It's anticipated that the entire stretch of N Carefree will be repaved by the end of September, weather dependent.

We thank you for your patience during this time and ask for you to apply extra caution and awareness through the cone zones. To help residents navigate these projects, the City of Colorado Springs has a data-sharing partnership with Waze, a free, real-time crowd sourced navigation app. For more information on 2C paving, including access to the city's Cone Zone map, visit www.coloradosprings.gov/2c.
