Expect I-25 Traffic Shifts, Lane Closures from Arkansas River to City Center Drive

Nov. 27, 2018 -

PUEBLO—Motorists on I-25 between the Arkansas River and City Center Drive should expect changes in traffic patterns and lane closures in both directions as crews complete barrier, paving, striping, signing, and other work necessary to get traffic into its final configuration on the Ilex Project by the end of the year.

Slight traffic delays are expected, and motorists are urged to use extra caution while traveling in the affected areas. All work is weather and temperature dependent.
