El Paso County Department of Public Works continues safety and drainage improvements along the southern portion of Monument Hill Road. Work includes construction of a free right turn lane from Monument Hill Road onto Woodmoor Drive, improvements to drainage along Crystal Creek and Monument Hill Road, and road reconstruction. Due to continued rain events and unexpected site conditions, the road remains closed from the intersection of Woodmoor Drive to the south entrance of the Monument Hill Church.
In the interest of decreasing the remaining construction timeline, Phase II work will begin in early July, prior to full completion of Phase I. Monument Hill Road will be closed from Woodmoor Drive to the south entrance of Palmer Ridge High School, eliminating access from Monument Hill Road to Deer Creek Road. The Project will provide alternate access for Monument Hill Church. A new detour map is provided with Woodmoor Drive, Furrow Drive and County Line Road serving as the primary detour. Construction is expected to be substantially complete in August. Project schedule remains dependent on weather and resources.
Drivers who need to use the detour route should plan for added travel time. Please reduce speeds and watch for workers, equipment, signs and barricades. El Paso County wishes to thank drivers in advance for their cooperation. Full road closure will accelerate the safe and efficient completion of this project. Funding for this project is provided through PPRTA.
