Northbound I-25 Right Lane Closure over Gruma Drive September 18 and 19

September 12, 2017 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - PUEBLO —The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and contractor Flatiron Constructors, Inc. will temporarily close the right lane of northbound I-25 traffic and the D-Street northbound I-25 on ramp from 4 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday, September 18 and Tuesday, September 19.

The closure occurs between Ilex/Exit 98A to City Center Drive/Exit 98B and is necessary to provide a safe work zone while setting girders on the I-25 bridge over the Union Pacific railroad tracks near Fay’s Crossing.

Speeds will be reduced to 45 mph, and traffic delays are expected. Motorists are urged to take alternate routes and use extra caution while traveling in the new traffic pattern.
