Northbound I-25 closed at Lincoln Avenue overnight Tomorrow & Thursday

January 26, 2016 - Denver Metro/CDOT Region 1 - LONE TREE – Overhead sign bridge installation requires overnight closures of northbound I-25 between Lincoln Avenue and C-470 / E-470 on bothWednesday, Jan. 27 and Thursday, Jan. 28 starting at 11 p.m.

All lanes will reopen by 5:30 a.m. in time for the morning commute. The northbound I-25 ramps to C-470 / E-470 will not be accessible during the full closures. All work is weather-permitting and subject to change.

All northbound motorists will be detoured off I-25 at Lincoln Avenue (exit 193), travel east (right) on Lincoln Avenue, head north (left) on Peoria Street, and enter westbound E-470 to access the on-ramp to northbound I-25. A detour map is available on the project website (www.codot.gov/projects/i25lanebalance).

E-470 tolls will not be collected along the detour route while the full closures are in place. Southbound I-25 will remain open.

Sign bridge installation is part of the I-25 widening project, which is nearing completion. Final median barrier and lighting installation will continue over the next several weeks. In February, there will be an overnight closure of southbound I-25 while an overhead sign structure is put in place on the west side of the highway.

Background:

The I-25 Widening Project adds an additional lane in each direction on I-25 from Lincoln Avenue to County Line Road, resulting in four lanes in each direction south of the C-470 / E-470 interchange. In addition to expanding capacity on I-25, crews have replaced asphalt with concrete to better match the I-25 corridor. This project improves traffic patterns from and to all affected ramps as well as provides new pedestrian connections. Funded by CDOT, Douglas County, City of Lone Tree and the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), this $32 million project is ahead of schedule with anticipated substantial completion in early 2016.
