Bridge Repairs Begin on I-25 Near Mead

August 3, 2011 - NEW CONSTRUCTION PROJECT - WELD COUNTY— This week, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) began a bridge repair project on Interstate 25 near Mead (exit #245).

The project will repair the expansion joints on northbound and southbound I-25 over the Great Western Railroad and pave the bridge approaches in concrete.

To complete the repairs, motorists can expect various single and double lane closures on northbound and southbound I-25 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday through Thursday (night work will be intermittent). In addition, there will be four to seven nights and two full weekends in which I-25 will be reduced to one lane in each direction in a temporary alignment.  More information will be released once the work is scheduled.

Major delays are possible throughout the project and alternate routes are strongly advised. CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all traffic signs and flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”  The speed limit will be reduced from 75 MPH to 45 MPH during work hours requiring lane closures. Fines for most infractions that occur in the work zone will be doubled.

Colorado Constructors, Inc. is the contractor for this $455,000 project that will be complete by the end of October 2011, weather permitting.
