Road Closures in Northern El Paso County

UPDATE: Vollmer has reopened. Tapadero and Green Mountain Rds. remain closed. 

El Paso County officials have closed several roads:

  • Vollmer Road between Shoup and Burgess in the Black Forest area. Traffic there is being detoured onto Herring Road and Burgess.  A water main break has opened a sink hole, forcing the closure.
  • Also, a 48-inch culvert has washed out, forcing the closure of Tapadero and Green Mountain Roads in the area east of I-25 near Monument Hill.  County officials say crews will work to replace and repair the structure and roads as soon as the water drains.
