COLORADO SPRINGS—From 8 p.m. Sunday Aug. 26 through 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 27, crews will close the northbound I-25 Rockrimmon off-ramp (exit 148) to set temporary barrier and stripe the highway.

Detour

  1. Continue northbound on I-25 to Woodmen Road (exit 149).
  2. Exit on Woodmen Road back to southbound I-25 and take the Corporate Drive/Rockrimmon Nevada Avenue exit (148).

Construction schedules are subject to change based on weather/unforeseen circumstances. The speed will be reduced to 55 mph in the construction zone during the project.

Project Info

CDOT started this bridge and driving-surface preventative maintenance project on 10 bare concrete bridges near the I-25 Rockrimmon interchange to improve safety and ride quality. This project is part of the ongoing CDOT Asset Management/Bridge Preventative Maintenance Program that began approximately 10 years ago to extend the life of the state's bridges to 75 years.

Ten bridges, with bare concrete decks, will be maintained as part of this project. Bare concrete decks are more susceptible to deterioration. The bridge maintenance on the structures will include expansion joint replacement, waterproofing membrane installation, and installing asphalt overlays to protect and extend the life of the bridge decks. Driving-surface preventative maintenance and safety improvements will also be addressed.
