CDOT completes sign replacement project on Interstate 25

July 21, 2020 - Southeastern Colorado

EL PASO COUNTY- The Colorado Department of Transportation and contract partner CC Enterprises are pleased to announce the completion of the I-25 Sign Replacement Project. The project  started over 5 months ago, January 21, and consisted of the removal and replacement of roadway signs along Interstate 25 from Mile Point 136.94 to MP 146.6. 

As part of CDOT’s Whole System — Whole Safety initiative, the sign replacement project improved safety by replacing damaged and missing signs. The new signs have better reflectivity at night to help motorists navigate the highway safely. The project included the removal of roughly 366 signs, installation of 16,741 square feet of new signs, posts and foundations.    


Safe transportation infrastructure is essential for emergency first responders and freight drivers as Colorado navigates the COVID-19 pandemic. With that in mind, construction continues on CDOT projects with social distancing and other health safety measures to reduce COVID-19 exposure on the worksite. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment announced guidelines for construction activities. The public is urged to join the campaign for #DoingMyPartCO and practice social distancing, wear face masks, stay at home when possible, and avoid nonessential travel. With fewer vehicles on the roads, CDOT crews will be able to work more efficiently and safely.


In early 2019, CDOT announced its Whole System — Whole Safety initiative to heighten safety awareness. This initiative takes a systematic statewide approach to safety combining the benefits of CDOT’s programs that address driving behaviors, our built environment and the organization's operations. The goal is to improve the safety of Colorado’s transportation network by reducing the rate and severity of crashes and improving the safety of all transportation modes. The program has one simple mission—to get everyone home safely.


CDOT has approximately 3,000 employees located throughout Colorado, and manages more than 23,000 lane miles of highway and 3,429 bridges. CDOT also manages grant partnerships with a range of other agencies, including metropolitan planning organizations, local governments and airports. It also administers Bustang, the state-owned and operated interregional express service. Governor Polis has charged CDOT to further build on the state’s intermodal mobility options.
