Kechter Bridge demolition requires 4 night closures of I-25 starting Friday

September 30, 2021 - Northeastern Colorado

TIMNATH The Colorado Department of Transportation continues widening I-25 in northern Colorado. Crews will close northbound I-25 from Colorado Highway 392 to Harmony Road and southbound I-25 from Harmony Road to CO 392 to demolish the existing Kechter Road bridge creating room for construction of the new northbound I-25 lanes and the new Kechter Road bridge.

Once completed, Kechter Road over I-25 will feature a roundabout on the west side of I-25 that improves safety and traffic flow issues and provides increased pedestrian safety with new sidewalks, pedestrian crosswalks, and bike lanes in each direction.

    • Northbound I-25 traffic will use Exit 262/ CO 392, turn right and continue east to CO 257. Turn left and go north on Colorado Highway 257 to Harmony Road. Turn left on Harmony Road and continue west to the northbound I-25 on-ramp.
