  • DAY WORK: Friday, June 3, and Saturday, June 4: Crews will be working under the Upper Lake Gulch Road Bridge; I-25 traffic will not be impacted. Flaggers will be directing and stopping traffic on Upper Lake Gulch Road, as necessary.

BACKGROUND: The I-25 over Upper Lake Gulch Road project began in November 2015.  Work on the project included milling, erosion control, and repairs to the deck and piers. The completed project will increase the structure’s life expectancy and reduce future maintenance costs, including pothole repairs. Structures, Inc., of Englewood, Colo. is the project’s prime contractor.
