Ramp Metering Postponed on North I-25 On-Ramps

LARIMER COUNTY—Crews have postponed the installation of new ramp meter lights on the northbound and southbound ramps at Colorado Highway (CO) 392, and on the southbound on-ramp at Harmony Road. No new date has yet been determined.

The metering, originally scheduled to begin last week, works by placing traffic signals along entrance ramps to a highway and allowing vehicles to enter that highway at a rate dependent upon the conditions of traffic. While motorists may experience some delay at the meter, highway speeds, safety and overall travel times are improved.

Metering will only take place during high-volume times in the morning and evening, during the week. Exactly when the meters will go into effect will be determined in the field and adjusted as needed.

Metering is in place in several areas around the state, but these will be the first ramp meters in Northeast Colorado.
