Road Closures at I-25/Fillmore Street this Weekend

August 27, 2015 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - COLORADO SPRINGS – The Interstate 25/Fillmore Interchange will be partially closed to traffic this weekend for intersection reconstruction.

Closures are as follows:

Friday, Aug. 28, 8 p.m. to Monday, Aug. 31, 5 a.m. – the ramps from northbound I-25 to Fillmore Street and from Fillmore Street to northbound I-25 will be closed.  In addition, Fillmore Street will be closed between Mark Dabling Boulevard and the southbound I-25 ramps.  All eastbound Fillmore traffic west of I-25 will need exit to southbound I-25.  Southbound I-25 traffic can exit at Fillmore but must go west on Fillmore. 


From northbound I-25: For points west of I-25, exit I-25 at Uintah, west on Uintah to Chestnut, north on Chestnut to Fillmore OR exit I-25 at Garden of the Gods Road, west on Garden of the Gods to Centennial Boulevard, south on Centennial to Fillmore.

From westbound Fillmore, east of I-25: Drivers who want to access northbound I-25 should go north on Nevada Avenue to Garden of the Gods Road, west on Garden of the Gods to I-25 OR continue north on Nevada to its junction with I-25 at Rockrimmon Boulevard.  Drivers wanting to access southbound I-25 are STRONGLY ENCOURGED to travel south on Nevada Avenue and access southbound I-25 at Uintah Street, Bijou Street or at the Nevada/Tejon Interchange.  CDOT is recommending that southbound travelers avoid the Garden of the Gods Interchange due to the high amount of traffic at that location.  PLEASE NOTE: Mark Dabling Boulevard will be closed for a local event on Saturday and cannot be used as a detour route.

The intersection work is part of a Colorado Department of Transportation interchange reconstruction project.  Completion is scheduled for summer 2016.

In addition to calling 511 or the website, real-time traveler information is available via CDOT Mobile.  It includes highway and traffic conditions and speeds, allowing drivers to make better travel decisions.  CDOT Mobile is free and available by downloading CDOT Mobile from the App Store or texting “CDOT” to 25827.
