THORNTON – The Colorado Department of Transportation is ramping up construction on Interstate 25 between 84th Avenue and Thornton Parkway – and this could cause some slowdowns.

Starting at 10 p.m. Friday, one lane of northbound Interstate 25 will close, along with the northbound on-camp at 84th Avenue.

The project aims to create a new toll lane and lower the road in order to create a better clearance under 88th Avenue.

CDOT says the project will be worth the trouble in the long run.
