In the Fall of 2018, construction began along North I-25 to add a third lane in each direction between Fort Collins and Johnstown, a project initiated through impressive partnerships and contributions from local municipalities and CDOT. The project will bring North I-25 to an interim build out, with final construction calling for a total of four lanes in each direction, including Northbound and Southbound express lanes. Adding the fourth lanes is expected to cost an additional $250M, funding local municipalities and CDOT are eager to secure soon.
On Tuesday, the Larimer County Commissioners approved a letter of support for an application by CDOT for a $100M grant through the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant program. If awarded, these grant dollars would pave the way for the fourth lanes, including major bridge work and the relocation of a port of entry for truck traffic. Preparing for the fourth lane now will save the region money, as the cost of construction continues to escalate.
