Traffic changes planned at Cimarron/I-25 in overnight work June 3-4
The time frame from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. June 3 has been set aside so crews can tie in a stretch of new pavement for eastbound Cimarron Street (Highway 24). The several-hundred-foot segment is just south of the old pavement (and parallel to it) and uses a new bridge over Fountain Creek that was built over the winter.
According to a Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) press release, the tie-in June 3 will force the closure that night of the southbound I-25 on-ramp. Also, Cimarron Street will be detoured around the work - eastbound to South Nevada Street and westbound to northbound I-25/Bijou.
The following night, June 4, there will be a full closure of northbound I-25 between Cimarron/I-25 and the Nevada/Tejon exit from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. This will allow traffic to shift in preparation for the temporary southbound I-25 split-lane configuration scheduled for mid- to late June, the CDOT release states. A single northbound I-25 left lane restriction will begin at 7 p.m.
The $113 million Cimarron/I-25 interchange replacement project, contracted to the Kraemer/TSH partnership, started in May 2015 and is scheduled to continue to December 2017.
