Emergency repairs close one lane of southbound I-25 ramp to Park Avenue West

DENVER — Crews closed the right lane of the southbound Interstate 25 off-ramp to Park Avenue West on Friday afternoon to conduct emergency repairs.

Crews worked on the ramp Thursday night and noticed issues with the way the concrete was setting, the Colorado Department of Transportation said.

Crews closed one lane to make the repairs.

The expansion joint on the bridge in the right lane is exposed, creating three large bumps in the road.

The bridge is in good condition, but the bumps could potentially cause vehicle damage if not taken care of immediately, CDOT said.

It is unknown how long repairs will take, but a spokesman said there is a potential for it to last into rush hour.

DriversĀ  should plan additional travel time to pass through the construction zone and slow down while passing crews.
