February 22 Travel Alert

Work Underway

CDOT and contractor Flatiron Construction are building a new bridge approximately 100 feet south of the existing structure. The closures on I-25 are necessary to accommodate a full concrete bridge deck pour on the new structure.

The new bridge is part of the I-25 Exit 11 Interchange Improvement project that began in mid-July 2021. The project is designed to improve infrastructure, upgrade facilities, add safety features, and improve access to Fishers Peak and area destinations. Work includes replacing the bridge, building ramp crossovers, constructing new roundabouts at the east and west sides of the interchange to improve traffic flow, adding pedestrian facilities, and improving access to the Port of Entry. Work is being performed in four phases with an expected completion date of late December 2022.
