Travel Advisory

December 21, 2020 - Central/Eastern Colorao

DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation will close the off-ramp from southbound Interstate 25 to westbound US Highway 6 during overnight hours Monday, Dec. 21 for a sign replacement. The closure will begin at 11 p.m. Dec. 21 and the ramp is expected to open back up by 6 a.m. Dec. 22. 

This closure is necessary for CDOT sign crews to replace and install a large overhead sign to enhance safety by warning motorists of the sharp turn on this off-ramp. As pictured below, the new sign will advertise the 25 miles per hour advisory speed, warning motorists to slow down when using this off-ramp onto westbound US 6.
