Purpose & Need

Purpose

The purpose of this project is to relieve congestion and improve safety on I-25 between US 36 and 104th Avenue in Adams County, Colorado.

Needs

Transportation improvements are needed to address: 

  • Traffic Operations - Existing traffic volumes along I-25 between the US 36/I-270 interchange complex and 104th Avenue are nearing or exceeding capacity. Population and employment growth are projected to increase travel demand, further reducing travel speeds and increasing congestion along I-25.
  • Safety - The total annual crash rate for I-25 between the US 36/I-270 interchange complex and 112th Avenue has been increasing since 2012. Rear-end crashes, typically associated with congestion, are the predominant crash type.
