I-25/Cimarron Overnight Ramp Closures RESCHEDULED for Tonight & Monday

March 24, 2016 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - Colorado Springs – Due to Wednesday’s inclement weather, the closure of the southbound I‐25 on and off‐ramps at US 24, have been rescheduled to tonight and Monday, March 28, from 9 p.m. to5 a.m. Traffic will detour via Bijou Street and Cascade Avenue. The ramp closures are required for paving activities and to set temporary barrier.


Southbound I-25 Off-Ramp Detour: drivers will take Exit 142 (Bijou Street), and go east on Bijou Street to south Cascade Avenue, and west on Cimarron Street/US 24.

Southbound I-25 On-Ramp Detour: drivers will go east on Cimarron Street/US 24 to north Cascade Avenue and go west on Bijou Street to I-25.

Motorists are advised to slow down and watch for clearly marked detour signs for directions. Ramps will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m. each morning. Work is weather dependent and subject to change.

PROJECT COORDINATION: The I-25 Fillmore and I-25 Cimarron Interchange Projects coordinate schedules when possible to minimize impact to the travelling public during construction.

PROJECT INFORMATION: The $113 million I-25/Cimarron Interchange Design-Build Project involves rebuilding the I-25 interchange between Colorado Avenue on the north and South Nevada Avenue to the south, 8th Street on the west and the Cimarron Street over Fountain Creek bridge on the east. Improvements are intended to provide enhanced operations, correct existing safety and design deficiencies, and to serve the anticipated short- and long-term travel demands in this area. When complete, this will be a high-functioning interchange that safely handles more vehicles and enhances multi-modal travel for those using I-25, US 24/Cimarron Street and the trail system along Monument and Fountain creeks. Substantial completion is planned for end of 2017.
