Southbound I-25 On-Ramp Closed at Prospect Starting Tonight

September 19, 2012 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Ramp to be closed only during working hours.

LARIMER/WELD COUNTIES — As part of the concrete slab replacement project on I-25 north of Johnstown, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will be closing the southbound on-ramp to I-25 at the Prospect interchange tonight, September 19 through next Thursday, September 27. The on-ramp will only be closed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each evening, excluding Friday and Saturday.

The closure is necessary to keep crews safe and allow the work to be completed properly in the right lane of southbound I-25. A detour will be in place via State Highway 14 for motorists heading to the interstate.

CDOT began working on the project, which spans from mile marker (MM) 257 at Johnstown to MM 290 south of the Colorado/Wyoming border, in August. Crews are removing and replacing damaged and broken concrete on I-25 throughout the length of the project, and by performing these basic repairs, CDOT will be able to extend the life of the interstate by preventing further concrete damage that will cost more to fix in the future.

Throughout the project, work will take place Sunday nights through Friday mornings from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each evening. Delays will be minimal and the speed limit through the work zone will be reduced from 75 MPH to 45 MPH. CDOT reminds motorists to drive Slow for the Cone Zone.

This project was contracted to New Design Construction for $914,000 and is expected to finish by July of 2013.
