Water main break set to close Garden of the Gods Road for days

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- A section of Garden of the Gods Road closed Tuesday because of a water main break, according to Colorado Springs Police. Now, police say the closures should be expected to last for days.

Initial reports of the water main break came in around 12:20 p.m. CSPD said the westbound and eastbound lanes were closed near Interstate 25 and originally said the closure could last several hours.

At 3:13 p.m., CSPD said eastbound and westbound lanes from Chestnut to Rusina will remain closed for the next 2-3 days.

Following the announcement of closing the road for several days, crews began digging into the road around 5:30 p.m. to locate the problem and begin making repairs.

After a few hours of working, CSU crews found the failure in the pipe connection that caused the water main break.

According to Colorado Springs Utilities, crews will work around the clock in an effort to re-open the road as soon as possible.

Colorado Springs Fire Department urged drivers to seek alternative routes.

CSPD asks anyone with questions to reach out to Colorado Springs Utilities.

  1. All the water mains along Garden of the Gods Rd between Rusina Rd and Centennial Blvd were supposedly replaced or refurbished between October 2019 and April 2020, which was supposed to prevent this from happening again. So what went wrong this time?

    1. To me it looks like where the new pipe is connected to an older one. Blew at the joint.

      1. That’s one of the things I pointed out last time as a potential weakness, that they kept replacing just short sections of old pipe with new instead of a whole length of new pipe. You don’t have to be a plumber to understand the problems with that approach.

      1. Got it!
        .
        BTW, forbidden words I’ve found so far are:
        01100001 01110011 01110011 01100101 01110011 01110011 00101100 00100000 01100010 01110101 01101101 01101101 01100101 01110010 00101100 00100000 01101101 01100001 01110011 01110011 01101001 01110110 01100101 00101110

          1. I’m sure there are lots more, but those few I found after trying to post them. One I had suspected I then confirmed after trying to post a quote from KRDO itself containing the word!

    1. I have seen this MANY times.
      Once someone gets a White hat” they do not do any more physical work. They just “supervise”.
      too many chefs, not enough cooks.
