CDOT to Conduct Trash Clean-up Thursday, April 13, Along I-25 in Colorado Springs

EL PASO COUNTY—The Colorado Department of Transportation's Colorado Springs Maintenance Department will conduct a trash clean-up operation from 7-11 a.m. on Thursday, April 13 along I-25. The trash clean-up will start north of Pikes Peak International Roadway (mile point 123), through Colorado Springs to County Line Road (MP 163), on both sides of I-25 and in the median.

Liter and blowing trash is an increasing problem in the area, and CDOT will have the entire maintenance crew—regardless of role—on clean-up duty. Motorists should expect to see increased activity along I-25, with additional personnel and CDOT vehicles in the area. Expect curiosity-slowing in the area. Please use extra caution in this specialty work zone.

CDOT reminds motorists to not throw trash from vehicles, cover/secure loads to prevent items from blowing out and be mindful of disposing of trash. CDOT works hard to keep our roadways free of liter and debris, but asks that everyone do their part to prevent trash from ending up on Colorado roads.
