COLORADO SPRINGS—The new southbound I‐25 off‐ramp at US 24 will be closed from 9 tonight Monday, May 23 to 5 a.m. Tuesday, May 24. Traffic will detour via Bijou Street and Cascade Avenue. The ramp closure is required for flatwork adjacent to the off-ramp.


Project information:

TRAFFIC DETOURS:

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

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.
