I-25 and CO 12 Critical Culvert Repair

About the Project:

This project entails repairing culverts that are in critical condition along the southern route of Interstate 25 and Colorado Highway 12. There are 4 locations on I-25 between Pueblo and the New Mexico border with 3 additional locations on CO 12 between La Veta and Trinidad. All culverts are in immediate need of repair, which includes new linings, headwalls and concrete reinforcements.


Project Benefits

This type of work expands the longevity of the culvert without having to completely replace it.


Work Schedule:

  • Hours of operations will be from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. during winter months and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during summer months.
  • The project is expected to wrap-up at the end of July.

Traffic Impacts:

  • Motorists will experience minimal travel impacts with an occasional lane closure for transporting materials. Shoulder closures are expected in the culvert work zones while repairs are taking place (I-25 Mile Post 88.25, 81.38, 16.44, 10.01 and CO 12 MP 27.21, 64.4 and 66.9).
