June 29, 2020 - Southeastern Colorado

PUEBLO COUNTY — Drivers will encounter lane closures on I-25, between mile point 111.75 and 112.18, north of Pueblo on June 29 through July 1, as construction crews pave a detour in the median. Monday and Tuesday, the northbound left lane and southbound shoulder will be closed from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Overnight closures will be in place from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., beginning June 29 through July 1, in both the northbound and southbound left lanes. Drivers should watch for reduced speeds of 55 mph. Drivers should plan for delays in the area.

This project is part of CDOT’s Whole System - Whole Safety initiative and will replace the structure at mile point 112 with a structurally sound concrete box culvert. Construction limits are currently in place and caution should be observed. Motorists should expect traffic impacts throughout the project, including a detour of the southbound lanes that will take drivers into the median through the construction area.

COVID-19

Safe transportation infrastructure is essential for emergency first responders and freight drivers as Colorado navigates the COVID-19 pandemic. With that in mind, road maintenance and 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 by practicing social distancing, wearing face masks, staying at home when possible, and avoiding nonessential travel. With fewer vehicles on the roads, CDOT crews will be able to work more efficiently and safely.  

WHOLE SYSTEM. WHOLE SAFETY  

The CDOT Whole System — Whole Safety initiative is designed to heighten safety awareness by taking a systematic statewide approach to safety combining the benefits of CDOT’s operations, programs addressing driving behaviors, and  our built environment. 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.
