Expect Delays Tonight due to Double-Lane Closures on Southbound I-25 at 120th Avenue

Oct. 24, 2017

Motorists can expect double-lane closures from 10 tonight to 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25 on southbound Interstate 25 at 120th Avenue. One lane of southbound I-25 will remain open.

This mile-long closure—part of the North I-25 Express Lanes: 120th Avenue to Northwest Parkway/E-470 project—allows crews to re-stripe the highway with reflective paint designed for asphalt material.

Project Info

The North I-25 Express Lanes project from 120th Avenue to Northwest Parkway/E-470 is a $97.5 million project that will improve safety, capacity and user choice to a rapidly developing region.

This project will continue the previous Express Lanes project, which was completed on I-25 between US 36 and 120th Avenue, and will extend the Express Lanes to Northwest Parkway/E-470. The project will add capacity on I-25 up to Northwest Parkway/E-470 and construct a new asphalt surface from 120th Avenue to Colorado Highway 7.

Work is expected to be completed by winter 2018.

Work hours are 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with periodic night and weekend work. Expect various lane closures on both northbound and southbound I-25, as well as periodic ramp closures. Traffic will be maintained during peak travel times throughout construction.
