CDOT will host a public meeting Tuesday for construction of the I-25 & Prospect Road Interchange 

September 5, 2019 - Northeastern Colorado

FORT COLLINS As construction activities on the I-25 North Express Lanes: Johnstown to Fort Collins Project progresses, CDOT is hosting a public meeting to present information on construction of the I-25 and Prospect Road Interchange. The meeting will be held at the Colorado Welcome Center, 3745 Prospect Road, Suite 105, Fort Collins, on Tuesday, Sept. 10, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

This meeting will begin with a brief presentation followed by an open house to provide information about upcoming construction activities, closures and detour routes, and answer any questions members of the community, local businesses or residents may have. 

Public meetings like this one are a good opportunity for those who drive in the area to learn about impacts, but it is also helpful to the project team to hear concerns and ideas from the people who know the area on a daily basis. 

PROJECT INFORMATION

The I-25 North Express Lanes: Johnstown to Fort Collins Project will increase capacity by adding an Express Lane in both directions, constructing inside and outside shoulders, and replacing aging bridges. The project will also improve multimodal access to regional transit to promote mode shift, improve bus service performance by adding new bus slip ramps from I-25 to the new Park-n-Ride at Kendall Parkway, and improve interchanges at Highway 402, Prospect Road and US 34.

REMEMBER: SLOW FOR THE CONE ZONE

The following tips are to help you stay safe while traveling through maintenance and construction work zones.

  • Do not speed in work zones. Obey the posted speed limits.

  • Stay Alert! Expect the unexpected.

  • Watch for workers. Drive with caution.

  • Don't change lanes unnecessarily.

  • Avoid using mobile devices such as phones while driving in work zones.

  • Turn on headlights so that workers and other drivers can see you.
