COS Officials: Cleanup could take time

COLORADO SPRINGS - The City of Colorado Springs is working to clean up the mess left behind by a wind storm that hit on Monday, but officials say it's going to take time.

The primary focus was clearing out overturned semis along roadways. There were nine overturned semis reported on I-25 between Circle and South Academy on Monday.

They have all since been moved out of traffic and all lanes of I-25 are open.

Workers say city-wide cleanup, though, is going to be a process.

“The final cleanup will probably take awhile. Our focus is on the emergency clearing streets and walks and hanging limbs. As far as cleaning up parts that may take weeks actually,” explained Jon Carlson with Parks and Recreation.

There are some things you can do on your own.
