Full Closure of Fillmore Street & I-25 Ramps

April 20, 2016 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - Night Closures planned for the Weekend of April 22-25 for median island installation

COLORADO SPRINGS – Beginning Friday, April 22, at 8 p.m., through Monday, April 25, at 5 a.m., a full closure of Fillmore Street from Chestnut Street to Mark Dabling Boulevard will be in place. Additionally, all I-25 on-and off-ramps at Fillmore Street will be closed during this time. During this closure, crews will remove and replace 5-inches of asphalt, install median drainage, and apply striping.

The closures are necessary to allow crews to remove 5-inches of asphalt and replace with Hot Mix Asphalt material. This material is sensitive to disturbance, such as motorists driving over it. During this time, crews will also install concrete median drainage on the east and west sides of the bridge, apply fresh striping across the interchange, and prepare to build the median islands the following week.

Detours and Alternate Routes

There will be signed detours along I-25 to direct motorists around the work. Motorists can utilize northbound Centennial Boulevard or I-25 to Garden of the Gods Road to access Mark Dabling Boulevard south to continue eastbound on Fillmore Street. Fontanero Street to northbound Chestnut will detour motorists around the closure to access westbound Fillmore Street. 

About the Construction Project

The project will convert the existing interchange into a Diverging Diamond Interchange configuration, the second along the Front Range and the third in Colorado. The new interchange will provide a more efficient traffic flow by allowing for continuous transition on and off the highway, increasing traffic capacity and reducing conflict points at intersections.  The project is approximately 78 percent complete and on schedule to be complete by summer 2016.
