MONUMENT – CDOT is hosting a public meeting Tuesday evening in Monument to discuss the future of I-25 between Colorado Springs and Denver.

The meeting starts at 5 p.m. at Lewis-Palmer Middle School and is expected to last until 7 p.m.

The meeting is expected to outline long-term solutions and ideas to improve the stretch of I-25 between C-470 and Colorado Springs during the gap project and after it is completed. It’s part of CDOT’s ongoing Planning and Environmental Linkages study.

The I-25 gap project is about to enter full-swing this summer, with all 18 miles between Monument and Castle Rock under active construction. There will be intermittent lane closures and impacts to frontage roads during the construction, but two lanes of traffic should be open throughout the entirety of the project.

The $350 million project will add a toll lane in each direction, replace bridges, add wildlife crossings and improve technology on the stretch of interstate. The gap project is expected to wrap up in 2022.
