Construction Activities & Impacts

CLOSURE OF CO 56 OVER I-25 | Starting Sunday, Aug. 1

Starting as soon as Sunday, Aug. 1 at 9 p.m., the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will temporarily close the Weld County Road 44/Colorado Highway 56 bridge over I-25 for no more than 140 days.
 
The northbound I-25 on- and off-ramps at CO 56 will close approximately five days later for a period no longer than 75 days, and the southbound I-25 on- and off-ramps will have minor intermittent nighttime and weekend closures.
 
This closure is vital to reconfiguring this interchange to a better layout in an economical way. Without the 140-day closure, the flipping of the interchange would not be possible.
