I-25 South Gap: Monument to Castle Rock Environmental Assessment

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are releasing the I-25 South Gap: Monument to Castle Rock Environmental Assessment (EA) for public comment.

Preferred Alternative:

CDOT proposes to expand I-25 between Monument and Castle Rock by adding a new tolled Express Lane in each direction, widening shoulders, replacing outdated infrastructure and addressing design deficiencies of the aging roadway, adding wildlife underpasses, and modernizing the facility with improved drainage, lighting, communications, power, and signage.

All improvements are planned within CDOT's right of way, and no property acquisition is anticipated.
