Travel Advisory

January 20, 2023 - Northeastern Colorado - This project will improve and prolong the life of the road surface

Larimer County - The Colorado Department of Transportation will begin work on Jan. 23 on a concrete slab replacement project on Interstate 25. Work will take place on I-25 between Fort Collins and Wellington.

This project consists of the removal and replacement of designated concrete panels on I-25 between Mile Point 281 and MP 269. ABCO Contracting Company, of Denver, is the contractor for this project.

This project will improve and prolong the life of the road surface. Work will primarily consist of removing damaged concrete panels, and replacing them with new concrete panels. Work will be completed in both northbound and southbound lanes throughout a 12-mile stretch of I-25. A smooth road or highway has many important benefits including safety and an improved driving experience. A smoother surface also offers safer driving for motorists.
