COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) and Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) investigating the cause of a water main break at the intersection of North Academy Blvd. and Maizeland Road causing several road closures — which are expected to continue through Monday.
According to CSPD, Academy is closed in both directions starting at Village Rd. S. and Constitution Ave through Monday. Detours are in place.
Utility crews say the roadway will be closed over the weekend because crews can dig 15-feet underground to treat the waterline. Crews say they hope to get the northbound lanes open at some point this weekend, but there are no guarantees.
According to CSPD, there are several road closures in the area, and to avoid driving through or around the area if possible. They say to expect lengthy delays as closures are expected for several hours.
Officials say it is important to avoid the area because of the possibility a sink hole can form.
