I-25 Bridge Work to Impact Traffic This Weekend

October 26, 2012 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - COLORADO SPRINGS – Bridge work by the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) will require lane closures on Interstate 25 at Cimarron Street overnight Saturday.

Between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, shoulder closures will be in place on Cimarron (U.S. 24) under  I-25.  Traffic impacts are expected to be minimal.

Beginning at 7 p.m., only one lane of northbound I-25 will be open at Cimarron for bridge deck repairs, including concrete pouring.  The closure continues overnight, with all lanes expected to reopen to traffic by 7 a.m. Sunday.   While the lane closures are in place, the Colorado State Patrol will assist with traffic control and enforcing a reduced speed limit through the work zone.  Drivers should expect significant delays during the first hours of the closure, with traffic slowing anticipated overnight.
