I-25 Gap Lane Project
I-25 Gap Lane Project requires weekend I-25 closure.
To accommodate I-25 Gap Lane Project work, along with critical elements of the US 6 Bridges Design Build Project, I-25 will close in both directions between Santa Fe Drive and the US 6 interchange for two extended periods of time over the weekend of Aug. 8, reopening for daytime peak traffic on Saturday.
CDOT’s new I-25 Gap Lane Project will deliver a much-needed improvement to northbound I-25 between Santa Fe Drive and the US 6 interchange by creating a fourth northbound through lane. Click here for more information on the project.
Closure 1: Friday night to Saturday morning
Closure 2: Saturday night to Monday morning
*Note: I-25 completely closes by 10 p.m., although lane closures begin at 9 p.m.
Crews will complete the following critical work on the I-25 Gap Lane AND US 6 Bridges Projects:
Repave and restripe both directions of I-25 between Santa Fe Drive and US 6
Demolish the north half US 6 bridge over I-25
Relocate three storm sewer lines across southbound I-25
Set girders for the northbound I-25 to westbound US 6 off-ramp bridge
During these weekend closures of I-25, CDOT implores regional through traffic to avoid the area altogether by using I-225, I-70, US 285, C-470, E-470 or any other alternate route. CDOT will work with local jurisdictions to monitor traffic along detour routes and manage congestion across the broader transportation network. Local detour routes for the full I-25 closures go as follows:
Northbound I-25 will detour to northbound Santa Fe Drive, continue north to 8th Avenue, west on 8th Avenue to Kalamath Street, and south on Kalamath Street to westbound US 6 to reconnect with northbound I-25.
Southbound I-25 will detour west on US 6 to Federal Boulevard, south on Federal Boulevard to 5th Avenue to merge onto eastbound US 6 to reconnect with southbound I-25. There could also be delays along eastbound US 6 near I-25 with additional traffic following this detour route.
Northbound Santa Fe Drive: As part of this closure, northbound Santa Fe Drive will close at Mississippi Avenue for the weekend, with traffic detoured on Mississippi Avenue to northbound Broadway and then Lincoln Street. Access to businesses along Santa Fe Drive will be available via Alameda Avenue. Detour signage will guide commuters through the area.
