This multi-year journey stated in the fall of 2004. The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored the project and assembled the team of CDOT, FHWA and the consulting firms of CH2M HILL and Wilson & Company.

One of the additional elements proposed by the design-build contractor and accepted by CDOT as part of the I-25/Cimarron Interchange Design Build improvements project is a new road connection between 8th and US 24/Cimarron streets through the site previously cleared of the old Express Inn structure. This new quadrant cut-off road connection will greatly reduce traffic at the existing 8th Street/US 24 intersection (by 20 percent on weekdays and 40 percent on weekends). It will postpone the need for additional improvements at this location for several years.  The new road connection is scheduled for completion by summer 2017.
