Project Information

Increased traffic from community growth and business development has created the need for the Colorado Department of Transportation to initiate design and development of I-25 Auxiliary/Continuous Merge Lanes and other operational improvements in Colorado Springs from the Fillmore Street to Garden of the Gods Road exits. Improvements are in accordance with the previously completed Environmental Assessment.
