Work on I-25 gap project to begin around Monument

Posted at 6:43 AM, Jan 29, 2019

MONUMENT – Work on the $350 million I-25 gap project will extend to the southern end of the work zone starting at the end of January.

CDOT will begin installing concrete barriers overnight along I-25 between Monument and the Greenland Road exit, approximately a 7-mile stretch. There will be overnight lane closures on both northbound and southbound to help install the barriers, but impacts are expected to be minimal.

There will still be two lanes open during peak travel times, but drivers should expect narrower lanes and the speed limit in the work area will be reduced from 75 mph to 65 mph. Throughout the course of the project, drivers should expect closures on the Greenland and County Line Road exit ramps and on Monument Hill Road.

CDOT said driving conditions will be similar to the stretch currently under construction between Tomah Road and Plum Creek Parkway.

CDOT will host a telephone town hall on Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. to discuss the project.  Those who wish to join the town hall can call 877-229-8493. Dial 112034 to enter the town hall.

CDOT will also host an open house event on Feb. 7 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Woodmoor Improvement Association Barn in Monument to discuss this phase of the project.

This summer, all 18 miles between Monument and Castle Rock will be under active construction. The project is expected to wrap up in 2022.
