― PROJECT ANNOUNCEMENT ―
The Colorado Department of Transportation, in cooperation with Myers and Sons Construction, is anticipated to start work on Interstate 25 this week. Work will include concrete panel rehabilitation, deer guard installations and wildlife fencing. The project work zone will take place along north and southbound I-25 from E Wolfensberger Road in Castle Rock (Mile post 181.75) to Lincoln Avenue near Lone Tree (MP 192.75).
Crews will be working both daytime and nighttime hours throughout the duration of the project, which is expected to go from April to December 2022. Daytime working hours will be focused on building ten miles of wildlife fencing, guardrails, and two deer guard installations at Happy Canyon Road. Nighttime working hours will primarily be dedicated to roadwork patching and will begin in late April.
The concrete rehabilitation will improve and prolong the life of the road surface, creating a smoother and safer travel path for motorists. Building wildlife fencing, and deer guards will significantly reduce the amount of accidents related to animals crossing the interstate.
- Daytime working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
- Nighttime working hours will be from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Friday.
- Single and double lane closures, alternating traffic intermittently in either direction, are expected regularly during nighttime hours throughout the duration of the project. These lane reductions may slow traffic and cause congestion, but are not anticipated to cause major delays.
- Motorists should slow down as they approach the work zones, drive with caution, allow extra space between vehicles, and give themselves extra travel time.
