Commissioners Approve Funding for Woodmen Road Improvements Project
Colorado Springs, Nov. 27, 2007 – The El Paso County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution to appropriate federal and county funds in the amount of $1,364,039 for the Woodmen Road Improvements Capacity Project.
El Paso County is receiving $1,129,288 in federal funds and will pay the remaining $234,751. The money will be used for construction management related services associated with the Woodmen Road project.
“The Woodmen Road corridor serves as one of the most important east-west transportation corridors in the Pikes Peak region,” said County Commissioner Wayne Williams, who represents much of the Woodmen Road area. “These funds will help to maintain Woodmen as a vital link to the region’s transportation system.”
Woodmen Road connects Interstate 25 to the west, Academy and Powers Boulevards and Highway 24 to the east. It provides public access to numerous residential subdivisions and businesses within El Paso County and the city of Colorado Springs. Construction of the new four lane road project between Powers Boulevard and State Highway 24 is expected to begin in early 2008.
