The Colorado Department of Transportation continues roadway improvements on I-25. These improvements involve widening the new 64-foot northbound section of I-25 south of Harmony Road to the east.

The existing East Frontage Road between Kechter Road and Swetsvile Zoo Road in Timnath will be closed permanently beginning May 10. Emergency service and local access to Connell Resource Pit will be maintained.

Local access will be maintained to Connell Resource Pit.

Travelers are urged to “know before you go.” Gather information about weather forecasts and anticipated travel impacts and current road conditions prior to hitting the road.

CDOT’s Whole System-Whole Safety program has one simple mission — to get everyone home safely. Our approximately 3,000 employees work tirelessly to reduce the rate and severity of crashes and improve the safety of all modes of transportation. The department manages more than 23,000 lane miles of highway, more than 3,000 bridges, and 35 mountain passes. CDOT also manages grant partnerships with a range of agencies, including metropolitan planning organizations, local governments, and airports. It also operates Bustang, the state-owned interregional express bus service. Gov. Jared Polis has charged CDOT to further build on the state’s intermodal mobility options.
