I-25 Lincoln Avenue to County Line Road Lane Balancing Project Has Begun

August 21, 2014 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - Project adds one lane in each direction.

Lone Tree, CO – The Colorado Department of Transportation has begun the reconstruction and widening of I-25 between Lincoln Avenue and County Line Road. Work will be performed in four phases. The first phase of the project will remove the existing median barrier and realign the driving lanes to begin widening on the northbound side of I-25.

“During construction, it is critical that we minimize inconvenience to the traveling public.  As a result there will be three lanes open in each direction during the day time and most of our construction impacts will be at night,” said Dole Grebenik, CDOT resident engineer.  Lane closures will occur between 8:00 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. on weekdays and between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. on weekends.

The $32 million project will add an additional lane in each direction on I-25 from Lincoln to County Line Road, resulting in four lanes in each direction.  In addition to expanding capacity on I-25, crews will also be replacing existing asphalt with concrete to better match the I-25 corridor. This project also helps to improve travel patterns from the C-470 southbound off-ramp and the northbound Lincoln on-ramp merges as well as provide better pedestrian trail connections.  Funded by CDOT, Douglas County, City of Lone Tree and DRCOG, the project will be completed no later than June 2016.

The project was contracted to Interstate Highway Construction, Inc. (IHC) of Englewood.
