A highway construction project that could save you a lot of time getting to the airport finally broke ground Tuesday afternoon. The Proby Parkway will begin near Drennan and Academy. Upon completion in October 2011, it will extend all the way to the Colorado Springs Airport. It's a $54 million dollar undertaking paid for by a voter approved tax from 2004. The city has said they hope the new road will entice more airline service to Colorado Springs.
