Correction: Northbound I-25 Right Lane Closure Over Gruma Drive May 18-19

PUEBLO—From 5 a.m. Thursday, May 18 through the afternoon of Friday, May 19, CDOT will temporarily close the right lane of northbound I-25, between Ilex/Exit 98A to City Center Drive/Exit 98B. This closure is necessary to provide a safe work zone as crews set girders on the I-25 Bridge over Gruma Drive.

During the closure, crews also will study traffic impacts to determine future lane closure options necessary for accelerating construction activities on the I-25/Ilex Design-Build Project.

Traffic Impacts

  • Speeds will be reduced to 45 mph.
  • Expect traffic delays.
  • Consider alternate routes and use extra caution while traveling in the new traffic pattern.
