Slocum Road reopens after bridge repairs completed


EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. — Slocum Road has reopened north of Highway 94 after it was closed for emergency road work for several days.

Recent heavy rains damaged both approaches to a bridge on Slocum Road about 1.5 miles north of Highway 94, forcing officials to close the road. Crews filled a cavern that developed under the pavement on the bridge approaches, and mitigated erosion problems on the south abutment.

The road reopened Friday afternoon.
