Construction project to close I-25 overnight Wednesday

Interstate 25 widening progresses as CDOT continues roadway reconstruction work in northern Colorado.

TIMNATH, Colo. — Interstate 25 in northern Colorado will be closed for at least one night while crews install new overhead sign structures.

The operation will require a full closure of northbound I-25 between Colorado Highway 392 and Harmony Road during the nighttime hours on Wednesday, April 6 and, if needed, Thursday, April 7.

The northbound closure will be in place from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. Detours will be in place for drivers.

Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is installing the signs as part of a project to widen I-25.

CDOT said that when the project is complete, capacity on I-25 will be increased by adding an Express Lane in both directions. CDOT is also constructing inside and outside shoulders, and replacing aging bridges.

Construction on the Berthoud to Johnstown segment is expected to be complete in early 2024.
