**UPDATE** 10/15/18

Crews will start construction near CO 402. There will be three main phases of work in this area that will continue through mid-2020:

  • Phase 1 will allow crews to build temporary infrastructure on the southbound side of I-25.  Phase 2 will push northbound traffic onto the southbound side to provide access to build infrastructure on the northbound side.  Phase 3 will switch northbound and southbound traffic onto the northbound side to allow crews to build the required infrastructure on the southbound side.

What to Expect

  • While most of the work will be performed outside the roadway, some nighttime lane closures will be required. CDOT will send advance notification of these closures.
  • Current work between Crossroads Boulevard and Kechter Road, near CO 392, will continue during construction at CO 402.

Coming Up….

  • In late summer 2019, crews will close CO 402 between the I-25 ramps. Watch for more details in spring 2019.
  • Once the project is complete, CO 402 will run over I-25.

Construction of the I-25 North Express Lanes – Johnstown to Ft. Collins – will begin at 9 p.m. Sunday, September 9th. (Visit CDOT website for details and updates), with the full closure of the East Frontage Road between Colorado Highway 392 and Crossroads Boulevard.

Upcoming Travel Impacts

  • At 9 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 9, crews will begin construction on mainline I-25 between Crossroads Boulevard and Kechter Road, near CO 392.

Ongoing Travel Impacts

  • Expect nighttime lane closures for the following:
    • setting barrier on both sides of I-25;
    • grade preparation and temporary asphalt paving; and
    • restriping I-25 for required traffic shifts, including removal of barrier.
  • Construction goals between CO 392 and Crossroads Boulevard include:
    • widening I-25 for additional Express Lanes;
    • relocating utilities;
    • erecting retaining wall under CO 392; and
