Resurfacing Work Set to Begin on I-25 South of Pueblo

April 15, 2019 - Southeastern Colorado

PUEBLO COUNTY — Colorado Department of Transportation, along with its contractor Martin Marietta Materials, will begin a safety improvement and maintenance project on I- 25 in Pueblo County the week of April 22. The project is expected to be complete in October 2019.

The project will resurface approximately 12 miles of I-25 from MP 79.6 to MP 92.0 to improve the roadway drivability, and improve vehicle traction to the surface. The project will also replace more than 20,000 linear feet of guardrail to meet the current safety standards. Additionally, eight bridges over Scroggs Arroyo, Muddy Creek, Verde Road, and Burnt Mill Road will be repaired. Minor deck repairs include removing and replacing unsound concrete and placing a waterproofing membrane and new wearing surface to extend the life of the structures.

Motorists can expect minimal delays on I-25. Travelers using cross streets that run under the interstate will encounter single-lane closures, with flaggers directing traffic during bridge repairs. Motorists are urged to be aware and cautious in work zones. Obey posted speed limits and avoid distractions.

Work hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Bridge work will be conducted from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. No work is planned at night or on weekends.

The project is funded through CDOT’s Surface Treatment and Bridge Asset Management Funds. Martin Marietta Materials of Pueblo was awarded the $7.6 million contract.
