The Powers corridor runs along the Eastern edge of Colorado Springs- bordered to the west by Powers Blvd. and to the east by Marksheffel Road, Woodmen Rd. to the north and the Colorado Springs Airport to the south.
This area derives it’s name from Powers Blvd. This is a major North/South road on Colorado Springs east side. The street derives it’s name from the fact that it was the route the power lines took to the United States Air Force Academy to the north. In the late '60s, there wasn’t really anything but the Academy in the northern part of Colorado Springs.
The Powers Corridor has seen fantastic growth over the last decade, and that will continue as the city continues to grow East. Because of Pikes Peak to the West, the city is naturally growing to the East. With this growth continues to bring new amenities and entertainment options.
The area is home to a wide array of newer shopping, restaurants, community parks and entertainment from big box stores and national chains to local favorites.
Some of the more popular neighborhoods in the Powers Corridor include Springs Ranch, Stetson Hills, and many other master-planned subdivisions. All utilities- water, gas, and electricity are supplied by Colorado Springs Utilities.
