Project Location: North Academy Blvd. southbound and northbound I-25 on-ramps

  • Traffic is reduced to a single lane on the ramps. Crews will also be working on the left shoulder of the ramps.

About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation will begin widening ramps and installing ramp metering along I-25 and the southbound Woodmen on-ramp, northbound and southbound Academy on-ramps, and northbound North Gate on-ramp. Work is set to begin June 13.

The project will enhance safety for Colorado’s traveling public. The construction of the widening and ramp-metering devices will make the road safer by improving traffic flow and safety by providing more gaps for merging traffic, provide automated monitoring and will be triggered by I-25 average running speed. Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technology will also be installed which includes video cameras, computers, vehicle detection, variable message signs, and alternate routing.
