The public is invited to an open house on final plans for the project to improve a stretch of the road between Shooks Run and Printers Parkway in Colorado Springs.

The Pikes Peak Avenue Reconstruction presentation is from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Immanuel Lutheran Church Gym, 828 E. Pikes Peak Ave.

Funded by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority, the project will remove and replace deteriorating pavement, concrete curb and concrete driveways along Pikes Peak Avenue, while sidewalks and ramps will be replaced to give pedestrians easier access, the city said.

Project representatives will be available for questions at the open house, which also features displays of the construction plans.

Construction is slated to begin in March.
