COLORADO — The Colorado Department of Transportation is nearing the end of its "Wrong Way" Prevention project that aimed to install or replace 2,500 wrong way signs.

The department has completed installing the road signs in Las Animas, Huerfano and Pueblo counties.

El Paso County is the last county remaining to have its signs updated or installed on the interstate.

The project focuses on 77 different on-off ramps along I-25. It began in January this year.

At its completion, the project will cost $2.1 million.

CDOT said this project is to help improve the safety of drivers by reducing wrong-way entry crashes and deaths. It will be finished by the end of the year.
