ILEX project nears completion in Pueblo

Posted at 8:16 AM, May 06, 2019

PUEBLO – We’re watching out for you with the latest on the Ilex project in Pueblo. The final tasks are temperature sensitive, so they’ve been waiting on warmer weather to get started.

Here’s what you need to know. From now until Friday, there will be full-day left lane closures on the Northbound side of I-25 from Abriendo to just north of City Center Drive. Then from Wednesday until Saturday, there will be a 24-hour left lane closure on the Southbound side of I-25 from City Center Drive to Abriendo.

Finally today, the Southbound Santa Fe Avenue off-ramp will be closed from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. for paving work.

The final phase won’t start until after Memorial Day. After the holiday, there will be more noticeable changes for drivers as they lay the final layer of driving surface down.

The whole project is expected to be completed by this summer.
