Between Thursday, September 2nd and Wednesday, September 8th, the City of Pueblo will be closing a portion of West 29th Street daily between the hours of 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM. All lanes in both directions will be affected by the closure.
The City is currently engaged in a project to repair a flood control pump station located below the railroad crossing at 29th Street, just east of Interstate 25. This short stretch of the roadway is heavily-traveled due to its proximity to the Interstate and the connection it provides to the Pueblo Mall, King Soopers, Natural Grocers, and numerous other businesses located in the area.
The 29th Street exits from Interstate 25 will remain open (Exit 100B – both north- and south-bound). However, while the closure is in effect, eastbound traffic on W. 29th Street will be forced to detour north at the Frontage Road.
Drivers approaching the closure from the west will need to detour north along the Frontage Road, east on Mel Harmon Place, and south along Dillon Drive to access area businesses. Drivers approaching the closure from the east will need to detour north and east along Hart Road to Dillon Drive, and north to Cesar Chavez Boulevard (State Highway 47) for access to US Highway 50 and Interstate 25.
While traffic lanes may open occasionally during this period, drivers should expect closures at any time between 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
We appreciate your extra patience and apologize in advance for the temporary inconvenience that this closure may cause while we work to make your City a safer place to live, work, and play. Please reach out to the City of Pueblo Public Works Department with any questions or comments at 719-553-2295.
