    Overnight full closures coming on North I-25 Express Lanes project between 104th Ave. and Northwest Pkwy/E-470.

    Upcoming Travel Impacts:
    Work on the North Interstate 25 Express Lanes project from 120th Avenue to Northwest Parkway/E-470 continues as crews perform paving operations and overhead sign installation—making significant progress on the project. This work will require the following major impacts to the highway. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.

    Overhead sign installation
    Work hours: Sundays through Thursdays, from 9:30 p.m. to 5:30a.m.
    Impacts: 7 nights of full closure of a single direction of I-25 for up to 2 miles.

    Description: Closures for overhead sign installation will occur 7 nights intermittently between September 16-24 from 104th Ave.and Northwest Pkwy/E-470. There will be 3 nights of closures on northbound I-25 (September 16, 18, and 19) and 4 nights of closures on southbound I-25 (September 17, 22, 23, and 24).
    Motorists will detour around these closures using Huron Street to the west of the highway and Washington Street to the east. Commercial vehicles will detour southbound at CO 7 to US 287 and northbound at CO 44 to US 85. This schedule is subject to change.

    Paving operations
    Work hours: Sundays through Thursdays, from 9:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.; Fridays from 9:30 p.m. to 9 a.m.
    Impacts: Double lane closures on both directions of I-25

    Description: Crews will continue perform paving operations intermittently between 104th Ave. and Northwest Pkwy/E-470. Motorists can expect to drive on a milled surface—it is recommended to slow down and keep a safe following distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. This work will ultimately deliver a smoother riding surface for all motorists, in addition to the Express Lane in each direction.

    Project Background: This project will add capacity with one Express Lane in each direction and provide travelers with the choice of taking the general-purpose lanes for free or driving the Express Lanes for a faster trip in exchange for a variable toll - the Express Lanes will be free to vehicles with three or more people. This project is expected to be complete in summer 2020.
