They are still detouring all southbound Soscol traffic onto Pueblo Ave. I just walked over there and looked. The repairs are going on down closer to Central Ave. All the water in the area is brown... I won't be doing laundry tonight!

Soscol still closed this morning with all southbound traffic detouring down Pueblo. East Pueblo is very slow, especially with McPherson kids trying to cross.

Thank you Karen for keeping us up to date. This is my normal route to work and I couldn't find anything telling me if Soscol was still closed this morning.

You're welcome!... I'll report back again around 1:30 after I go home for lunch.

The city hasn't sent an update since 5 p.m. so I'm going to operate on the assumption it's still down to one northbound lane - Karen, your eyewitness reports are great. Thank you!

Still closed... one lane open going north. All southbound traffic is still being detoured onto Pueblo Ave. There is still a lot of big equipment in the road on Soscol at Central Ave.

All clear!
