On June 10, the Colorado Department of Transportation will begin a highway improvement project on the southbound lanes of I-25 north of State Highway 14 from MM 269 to MM 282 near the Wyoming state line.

Work on the project will include replacing slabs of concrete, using a process called diamond grinding to smooth out panels that will not be replaced, and replacing guardrail in some areas as necessary. Crews will be working Mondays through Fridays during daylight hours, and a 24/7 lane closure will be in place where work is underway. A reduction in speed will occur, but no delays are expected. Motorists are encouraged to build in extra travel time if driving through the project, and are urged to drive Slow for the Cone Zone!

Scott Contracting is the contractor for this $2.3 million project, which is scheduled for completion in October 2013.
