Paving to Cause Delays on I-25 Near Lincoln Avenue on Friday Night

August 2, 2012 - Denver Metro Area/CDOT Region 6 - On Friday, August 3, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will pave a portion of northbound I-25 near Lincoln Avenue as part of an ongoing resurfacing project that paves approximately one mile of northbound and southbound I-25 between Lincoln Avenue and C-470 in asphalt.

The work will require up to two lanes of northbound I-25 to be closed from 8 p.m. Friday to 10 a.m. on Saturday.

“This is the last segment of I-25 that we need to pave as part of this project,” said CDOT Project Engineer Tanisha Alford.  “Once the paving is complete, we will have some minor work left such as striping and shoulder work, but the majority of the roadway work will be finished.”

Major delays are expected on Friday night and alternate routes are strongly advised.  CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all construction signs and flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.” Most fines for infractions that occur in the work zone will be doubled.

Motorists can continue to expect single and double lane closures on northbound I-25 from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Sunday through Thursday through the remainder of the project.

Aggregate Industries is the contractor for this $1.1 million project that will be completed by early to mid-August 2012.
