Project Info

CDOT is improving 18 miles of I-25 from south of Castle Rock to Monument by widening the road from two to three lanes in each direction. The new lane will operate as an Express Lane, allowing motorists the choice of taking the Express Lane for a faster and more reliable travel time in exchange for a toll, or driving the general-purpose lanes for free. Carpools with three or more people and motorcyclists will be able to ride the Express Lane for free.

Other improvements include widening the shoulders, rebuilding bridges, building new wildlife crossings, resurfacing with new pavement and modernizing technology.

The cost of the project is $350 million. Substantial completion of the project is expected late 2021, with Express Lanes opening in 2022.
