Plan in the works to fix one of Denver’s worst highway bottlenecks

DENVER -- The Colorado Department of Transportation has a plan to ease the bottleneck that happens on southbound Interstate 225 heading into the Denver Tech Center.

CDOT said it will convert the shoulder to an additional lane by restriping less than a mile of the highway from Yosemite Street to Interstate 25.

Night work on the project could last up to a month. At least one lane of I-225 will stay open during the overnight hours.

There will be changing traffic patterns during the work, CDOT said.
