Crossroads Boulevard will be closed Monday night for placement of the temporary bridge on I-25.

"An innovative temporary Acrow Bridge will be constructed west of I-25 prior to the demolition of the current bridges," Project Engineer Jim Hoffman said in a news release from CDOT. "By placing this temporary bridge on I-25, we will be able to maintain 2 lanes of traffic on the roadway during daytime hours."

The closure will run from 9 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday, with a contingent date scheduled for Tuesday, November 22, beginning at 9 p.m. in the event of inclement weather.

If you plan on traveling along this route, plan for additional travel time to follow the suggested detour around the closure. Those traveling north on I-25, attempting to go west on Crossroads Boulevard, will proceed north to CO 392, then heading back south on I-25 to exit at Crossroads Boulevard. This will add approximately 6 minutes of travel time. Motorists traveling on I-25 south attempting to go east on Crossroads Boulevard will continue south to US 34, then heading back north on I-25 to exit at Crossroads Boulevard, adding approximately 4 minutes travel time. When in doubt, just follow posted detour signs and flaggers' directions throughout the construction zone. 

CDOT says an Acrow Bridge provides a "safer, faster alternative route during construction in which lanes are moved to divert traffic around work sites."
