I-25 North, US 36 to 120th Avenue

Design is complete for the extension of managed lanes on I-25 from US 36 to 120thAvenue.  This six mile segment will maximize the use of the existing highway infrastructure to expand the capacity of I-25 by utilizing the inside shoulder of the road, creating one managed lane in each direction.  In addition, the project will resurface the existing general purpose lanes. The managed lanes will accommodate HOV’s and RTD Express buses for free, and SOV’s who will pay a toll. The award of a $15 million TIGER grant accelerated the delivery of this $60 million project. The project is managed by CDOT as a traditional design-bid-build delivery. Construction began in 2013, and lanes opened for testing in March 2016.
