EL PASO AND PUEBLO COUNTIES, Colo. – Beginning on Dec. 3, Thursday, northbound guardrail operations will begin on the I-25 cable barrier project.

Work on the northbound side will take place Monday through Thursday with northbound daytime single lane closures beginning on Thursday from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Crews are taking advantage of daytime temperatures in order to complete the project by the end of the year.

The project primarily takes place between Wigwam and Pikes Peak International Speedway. In addition to the guardrail and cable barrier installation, work will also focus on finalizing asphalt paving and finishing the land reclamation portion of the project. Crews will continue work on the flattening of slopes, mow strip paving, and culvert cleaning. Installation of cable barrier along this stretch of I-25 will enhance safety by reducing median crossovers. Crews are working on a seven mile stretch from MP 114 to MP 121 which includes added work between MP 114 to MP 116.
