Project Update

March 4, 2024 - Southeastern Colorado - Motorists should expect delays beginning March 4

Pueblo and Huerfano Counties — The Colorado Department of Transportation with its contract partner Martin Marietta will begin surface treatment work on Interstate 25 on Monday, March 4. Work will take place near Colorado City on I-25 between Mile Point 64 and MP 79.6 in Pueblo and Huerfano counties. The project is scheduled for completion by late December 2024.

Crews will remove and replace 2.5 inches of asphalt, thereby extending the life of the pavement. Additionally, crews will replace guardrail and do bridge preventative maintenance work to several structures along the route providing safer traveling conditions by improving the functionality of the structures.

Once complete, the project will improve the drivability for motorists on this busy stretch of I-25 in Pueblo and Huerfano Counties.
