Crews on Oct. 1 to Remove Traffic Split, Begin Traffic Shift at I-25 & Rockrimmon

Sept. 28, 2018 -

At 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 1, crews will remove a temporary split-lane configuration and then shift the southbound I-25 lanes right.

Other Impacts:

  • At 5 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, crews will temporarily shift the northbound I-25 lanes between Garden of the Gods and Woodmen Roads.
  • The outside and middle northbound I-25 lane crossover to the median will use the existing southbound I-25 lanes.
  • The outside northbound I-25 lane will use a temporary lane constructed on northbound I-25.
  • Concrete barrier will separate the split.
  • All three lanes will be open in each direction.
  • Please remain in one lane as you travel through the project.

Overnight Lane Restrictions

  • Expect restrictions in both directions of I-25 between Garden of the Gods Road and Woodmen Road as crews stripe and set temporary barrier before they remove the southbound traffic shift and put in place the northbound split traffic shift.
    • From 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30 through 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 1, expect double-lane restrictions (left and right lanes).
      Caution: There may only be one through lane in this area.
    • From 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1 through 5 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, expect single-lane restrictions (left lanes).
    • From 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2 through 5 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, expect double-lane restrictions (left and right lanes).
      Caution: There may only be one through lane in this area.

Completed Phase 1 and Phase 2 Work

  • median concrete barrier installed
  • lighting upgraded to LED and incorporated into median barrier
  • improved drainage and guardrail improvements on southbound I-25
  • widened road and improved ride on southbound lanes of I-25
  • widened northbound I-25 to match existing profile (Ride improvements in this area will be addressed in Phase 3.)
  • bridge preventative maintenance on southbound I-25
  • improved ride and preventative maintenance on all on- and off-ramps over Mark Dabling
  • Note: The right lane of northbound I-25 will not be on final roadway surface in Phase 3.

There will be one more phase to complete the ride improvements on the northbound I-25 lanes. The project's anticipated completion date is late December 2018.

Project Info

CDOT has undertaken 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 bridge structures to 75 years.
