You might experience some delays on Interstate 76 near I-25 Tuesday, but you probably won’t complain about the reason why.

Colorado Department of Transportation crews are repairing broken concrete slabs on the westbound side of the highway between Federal Boulevard and I-25.

This work will mean all but one lane of the road will be closed.

The project is expected to last until late afternoon.

CDOT didn’t mince words about this could mean for traffic in its news release.

“Motorists will experience heavy delays,” CDOT said. “Alternate routes are recommended.”
