CDOT lowering Speed Limit through I-25 Expansion Project

November 13, 2013 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - Colorado Springs – The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph along a four-mile segment of Interstate 25 later this week to enhance driver and worker safety.

New speed limit signs should be installed by Friday, Nov. 15 on northbound and southbound I-25 between Woodmen Road and Black Squirrel Creek, between Interquest Parkway and North Gate Boulevard.

Work through this segment involves installing guardrails, lights and signs, landscaping and removing the concrete barriers used to create the work zone.   The approaches to the new southbound bridge also will be graded and paved.

A 65 mph speed limit has been in effect through this area but as work increases and the protective concrete barrier is repositioned from the southbound lanes, driver and worker safety is requiring the speed reduction.

Colorado State Patrol troopers will continue to strictly enforce the new posted speed limit.  As a reminder, work zone fines are doubled.  Nighttime speed limits remain at 45 mph in areas where traffic is restricted to one lane.

All work is subject to road and weather conditions.
