The Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT)
Interstate 25 Expansion open house is set to take place on Thursday,
Feb. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. at The Classical Academy Central Campus,
1655 Springcrest Road. It originally was scheduled last Thursday but
postponed due to adverse weather.
CDOT is holding the open house to give the public an opportunity to
get more information about the project, which consists of adding one
lane in each direction between Woodmen Road in Colorado Springs and
State Highway 105 in Monument.
The contractor team, led by Kiewit Infrastructure Co. and Parsons
Brinckerhoff, has committed to opening the third lane in each
direction by Dec. 31, 2013.
Construction gets underway in early March. When completed, it will
improve safety, ease congestion, protect habitat and wetlands, and
improve access onto and off the interstate.
Additional information will be available on the project website
www.southi25expansion.com within the next couple of weeks.
