This month, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and contractor partner, Kraemer North America, mark two years of construction on the 18-mile I-25 South Gap project, which will increase safety and mobility through the delivery of Express Lanes, wider shoulders, new bridges, wildlife crossings and improved technology. The entire project remains on schedule to conclude in 2022.

Telephone townhall

On Thursday, Sept. 17, at 6:30 p.m., CDOT, Colorado State Patrol and Kraemer North America will host a telephone townhall to discuss major project milestones, upcoming work, and work zone safety.

Project experts will be on hand to answer questions from the public. An automated system will call residents throughout the project corridor at random to participate. Those who don’t receive a call but want to join can call toll free, 855-710-6230.

Most notably, five miles of the project, between Plum Creek Parkway and Sky View Lane (Tomah Road), will be completed this fall. Once complete, the roadway will function in a temporary alignment with the planned Express Lanes and inside shoulders operating solely as 27-foot emergency access shoulders. Motorists may use the two, 12-foot general purpose lanes in either direction of this section of roadway. Once the entire 18-mile project is complete in 2022, the new lanes will open as an Express Lane in each direction.
