Surface Work on I-25 Expansion Project extending to Daytime

August 6, 2014 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - Colorado Springs – Milling and paving work on northbound and southbound Interstate 25 between Colorado Springs and Monument, delayed by recent prolonged and heavy rains, is almost complete between Woodmen Road and North Gate Boulevard

As weather and road conditions allow, crews continue working in that segment.

To accommodate daytime and nighttime paving operations, through-traffic lanes will shift to the inside beginning the week of Aug. 10. The traffic shift will provide drivers with three through lanes both northbound and southbound while providing room to pave the outside lane, auxiliary lanes and the outside shoulder. Crews plan to finish paving northbound lanes to Black Squirrel Creek before moving to the southbound lanes. The addition of daytime milling and paving will result in:

  • Daytime speed limits will be reduced to 55 mph where milling and paving are taking place
  • Nighttime speed limits will remain at 45 mph where milling and paving are taking place

Daytime milling and paving will take place Monday through Saturday.

Nighttime work will continue six nights a week, Sunday through Friday. Friday night lane and ramp closures will begin at 9:30 p.m. and will be open by 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

Drivers can expect to see heavy truck traffic in the area as asphalt is delivered for the paving work.

Final paving is scheduled end in late summer.

All work is subject to weather and road conditions.
