PUEBLO—From 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 2 through 7 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 3, crews will close northbound and southbound Interstate 25 at Indiana Avenue—work that was postponed from this past weekend due to inclement weather. During the closure, crews will remove barrier and stripe the roadway.

When I-25 opens Thursday morning, traffic will be in its final configuration, but there will be a temporary lane closure in each direction through Wednesday, Aug. 23.

Detours

Traffic will be detoured at Exit 96.

  • Northbound traffic will detour at the Indiana Avenue off-ramp and return to I-25 via the on-ramp after crossing Indiana Avenue.
  • Southbound traffic will detour on the Minnequa Avenue off-ramp, then turn left on Evans Avenue to the Aqua on-ramp.

Access to the Indiana Avenue northbound on- and off-ramps will be maintained. Flaggers will be present at all intersections to guide motorists through the detour.

Traffic Impacts

Expect delays and a speed-limit reduction to 45 mph. Please use extra caution while traveling the new traffic pattern.
