MONUMENT, Colo. — Northbound Interstate 25 just north of Monument will be closed for three nights this week for paving operations.
The northbound lanes of the interstate will be closed at County Line Road from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights.
During the closures, northbound traffic will funnel into one lane south of the County Line Road bridge, then detour around the closure using the newly-constructed off- and on-ramps at County Line Road.

The County Line Road bridge over the interstate will also be closed while the detour is in place.
Drivers can use the Highway 105 interchange for local access and access to northbound I-25.
The closures are part of the I-25 Gap project, a $419-million project to improve I-25 between Monument and Castle Rock by widening the interstate from two to three lanes in each direction.
Work on the 18-mile-long project began in September 2018 and is expected to continue through 2022.
