|I-25 Corridor near Crossroads Boulevard on Google Maps|
Commuters on I-25 should expect slower speeds near the bridge over Crossroads Boulevard in the coming weeks. Speed limits have already been lowered to 65 mph as construction crews work to replace the northbound and southbound bridges. Flaggers will be stationed on Crossroads Boulevard in Loveland to direct traffic this week. Northbound I-25 traffic will be diverted to a temporary bridge later this month as workers replace the northbound bridge. Once that is completed, similar diversions will occur for the southbound bridge around mid-March. During the daytime, two lanes will remain open in each direction for the duration of the project. Temporary lane reductions will be confined to the nighttime hours.
The bridges are being widened to three lanes in each direction to accommodate the coming I-25 expansion project and to facilitate higher speeds at what is now described as a “pinch point.” Work on the bridges is currently on schedule and is tabbed for completion in October 2017.
