Concrete Replacement on I-25 Starts Sunday

September 30, 2011 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Work will extend the life of the interstate.

LARIMER/WELD COUNTIES — Beginning Sunday, October 2, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin concrete replacement on I-25 from mile marker (MM) 267 at Prospect to MM 272 at Mount Vista. Night work will take place from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays until the end of October 2011.

“By removing and replacing the damaged and broken concrete on I-25, we can extend the life of the highway by preventing further damage, which will save the state money in the long run,” said Project Engineer Nick Stermer.

Motorists should expect major delays on both northbound and southbound I-25 as traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction, and speeds will be reduced to 45 MPH through the work zone. Alternate routes are strongly advised. There are no oversize/overweight restrictions at this time.

CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all road signs and flaggers, and to drive Slow for the Cone Zone. To receive updates about road conditions in the area, visit www.coloradodot.info/ and click on the green cell phone icon in the upper right hand corner of the page.
