Road Work on I-25 South Gap Project Begins

Sept. 4, 2018

SOUTHERN FRONT RANGE—On Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018, CDOT and Kraemer North America started work on the I-25 South Gap project, which spans an 18-mile segment of I-25 between Monument and Castle Rock.

Road work will begin on the northern portion of the project near Castle Rock, between Plum Creek Parkway and  Sky View Lane (Tomah Road Interchange), as crews begin milling pavement in preparation for restriping and barrier placement. Once barrier is placed to designate the work zone in the median, traffic will be shifted to the far outside shoulders.

Project Info

The I-25 South Gap project encompasses an 18-mile stretch of I-25 from Monument to Castle Rock. With just two lanes in each direction currently, congestion, crashes and delays have been a growing concern. That's why CDOT accelerated its efforts to widen the roadway and construct other improvements in that section of the corridor. In fact, with just a year from initial study to construction, this is the fastest approach ever by CDOT for delivery of a project this size.
