Crews are closing the left lane on southbound I-25 at about 9:00 p.m. and then at 10:00 p.m., crews will close down an additional lane starting at Bijou Street. Only one lane will be open for drivers and there could be lengthy delays a s a result. The lanes are scheduled to be reopened at 5:00 a.m. on Monday and Tuesday morning.

Tuesday, August 27th
On Tuesday night, crews are closing down a single lane on southbound I-25 at about 9:00 p.m. and at 10:00 p.m., the all of the southbound lanes will be closed until 5:00 a.m. Wednesday morning. You can exit southbound I-25 at Bijou Street, head east to Tejon or Nevada and then head south to access I-25. Major delays are possible through the overnight hours.
