Full Closures of I-25 On/Off Ramps Coming August 2 and 3
Like the old Whtiesnake tune, here go again with two nights of full closures at the I-25 and Highway 34 interchange in Loveland. Albeit they're night closures, they will still affect many drivers.
On one of the nights you'll have to go north to go south; on the other night, you'll have to go north to go east or west. Yes, it does sound confusing, but that's probably how CDOT finds any joy out of these closures.
This $300 million "I-25 North Express Lanes Project" began in 2018, and not counting for the pandemic delays, they want to have it done by sometime in 2024. I think we can all agree that we shouldn't hold our breaths on that, but when it's finally completed we'll have a glorious new route with toll lanes making things quicker and less congested.
Eight hours of overnight work for both of these upcoming closures makes it easier on traffic and, of course, the workers creating their 'magic' out there. The thing is, with the closures starting at 9 p.m., there are still plenty of travelers who'll be adjusting their routes.
With these closures, they'll be shutting down the east side of the interstates on and off ramps.
