More I-25 closures ahead this week as 'Gap' project continues

By  | 

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (KKTV) - As work continues on the so-called "I-25 Gap," more closures are on deck for the coming days.

Sunday beginning at 8 p.m., the Sky View Lane (Larkspur) on-ramp to southbound I-25 and the southbound I-25 off-ramp to Spruce Mountain Road will be closed intermittently. CDOT says it will use the existing shoulder along southbound I-25 between Sky View Lane and Spruce Mountain Road to create a new auxiliary lane for the upcoming Renaissance Festival, which runs weekends starting June 15 through Aug. 4. The lane will only be open for festival weekends.

The Renaissance Festival posted more traffic information on its website.

Monday and Tuesday, crews will be restriping southbound I-25 at Plum Creek Parkway. According to CDOT:

"Crews will re-stripe southbound I-25 at Plum Creek Parkway to improve safety and traffic flow during construction. The two right lanes will be exit-only lanes and the two left lanes will be through lanes. To prepare for this, the following traffic impacts are required:

Monday, 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.: Wolfensberger Road on-ramp to southbound I-25 and southbound I-25 off-ramp to Plum Creek Parkway closed for overhead sign replacements and striping activities. Drivers should use Plum Creek Parkway to access southbound I-25.

Tuesday, 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.: All southbound I-25 traffic will exit at Plum Creek Parkway and re-enter southbound I-25 using the Plum Creek Parkway on-ramp. Motorists will then continue traveling southbound I-25 in a single lane using the right shoulder for approximately a mile so crews can complete roadway re-striping.

While full implementation will take two nights, drivers will start to see this traffic switch Tuesday morning."
