Removal of Fillmore-GOG light poles needed to allow COSMIX widening

       In anticipation of the start of COSMIX construction on I-25, crews are scheduled to remove the light poles on the outside shoulder from Fillmore Street to north of Garden of the Gods Road starting Sunday night, June 26.
       This preparation work will make future lane shifts safer for the traveling public, according to COSMIX spokesman Bill Badger. The light poles will be stored until construction work in this segment is completed and then put back into place, he said.
       Re-striping of the interstate between Fillmore and Garden of the Gods Road will occur after the Fourth of July holiday weekend. Subsequently, concrete barriers will be installed along the inside shoulder to separate traffic from construction work, he said.
       Short for Colorado Springs Metro Interstate Expansion, COSMIX will widen I-25 to three lanes in each direction from just south of Bijou to North Academy Boulevard and reconstruct several major interchanges.
