TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Motorists can expect delays on northbound I-25 through Adams County this Friday

February 1, 2018 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - ADAMS COUNTY – As part of Deputy Heath Gumm’s procession, motorists can expect a rolling full closure on northbound Interstate 25 from 104th Avenue to Colorado Highway 7 this Friday, February 2. (Corrected Version - Tolls will be waived on I-25 from 104th to 120th, NOT on E-470)

The procession will start at approximately 8:45 a.m., beginning at 104th Avenue, and will end at approximately 11 a.m. at CO 7. Full northbound closures will be in place as the procession enters and exits I-25. Motorists can expect up to a 45 minute delay throughout the I-25 corridor and surrounding roadways as a result of the closure.

In addition to the rolling closure on I-25, Adams County will conduct a full closure of CO 7 in both directions from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Surrounding roadways will likely become extremely congested as a result.

Tolls will be waived on the North I-25 Express Lanes from 104th Avenue to 120th Avenue during the closure. Once the procession has passed through the area, the ramps will reopen and the tolls will be reinstated.

CDOT is encouraging motorists to leave early to avoid delays but keep in mind 8:45 a.m. is not a set start time as it is up to the family when they want to begin the procession. Motorists should plan ahead in case the procession begins earlier or later than 8:45 a.m.

There is expected to be at least 2,000 vehicles as part of the procession and will be moving at approximately 25 miles per hour. Motorists should visit, call 5-1-1, or visit CDOT’s Facebook and Twitter pages to receive travel alerts.

Emergency vehicles will be permitted to enter closure points.
