Road Problems

It's not just drivers who are frustrated about construction on one of the state's busiest highways.

A new interchange has been completed at I-25 and the Monument exit and some merchants in the area are angry the interchange routes cars away from the downtown business core.

In September, as part of the state's project to renovate the highway, CDOT blocked the exit for southbound traffic which took vehicles directly into downtown Monument.

Now, traffic is routed to a new exit about a half-mile south away from businesses.
