DENVER — There will be a gigantic traffic mess on I-25 in Denver during the overnight hours Friday and Saturday.

Both directions of the Interstate will be closed from 11 p.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday from Speer Blvd. to I-70.

Crews are installing beams for the new 15th St. bridge over I-25.

The same closure will happen from 11 p.m. Sunday until 5:30 a.m. Monday so workers can finish the job after taking the day off for Easter.
