Southbound Interstate 25

DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation announced it will begin a multi-million dollar project to widen Interstate 25 in south Denver in early August.

The I-25 Lane Balance Project will widen the interstate between Lincoln Avenue and County Line Road from six lanes to eight lanes, CDOT said.

Construction is slated to begin early August and will last approximately two years.

CDOT said the $35 million project will enhance the highway’s traffic capacity, replace existing asphalt with concrete, eliminate the East Frontage Road, create a pedestrian-friendly trail connection and improve ramp connections along the stretch of roadway.

During construction, three lanes will be maintained in both directions to allow traffic through, CDOT said. However, some night-time lane closures will be implemented.



    That is not the problem area, The problem is I-25 At Santafe, The designer should be Fired & Fined for that mistake!

      Agreed with the mess on santa fe needs to be fixed. Between lincoln and county line they will just be making a bottle neck like i225 and then a few years down the line we will have another t – rex going in. Cdot should be making roads like east arapahoe, county line, hampden, bellview, santa fe into highways with on and of ramps to make it like c 470, and west hampden, even parker road. That would clean it up a bit. Even make 470 wider would be ideal.
