Berthoud to Johnstown I-25 Project Will Close Two Roads Next Week
Remember when there was no construction on I-25? Nope, me neither. The congestion between Fort Collins and Denver is frustrating. There's obviously a need for more lanes on this main artery interstate, but man, the construction is a bummer.
The current project between Berthoud and Johnstown is called the I-25 North Express Lanes Project. The "Berthoud to Johnstown section will increase highway capacity by adding an Express Lane in each direction, rebuild interchanges, replace aging bridges, straighten highway curves to improve safety, make major utility and drainage improvements, and add carpool and transit facilities."
Those improvements will be awesome. The construction in the meantime will not. On Tuesday, February 21 and Tuesday, February 28 there is a detour to take note of. It will happen during the busy drive times, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
I-25 North Express Lanes Project:
Tuesday, Feb. 21, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Colorado Department of Transportation and the I-25 North Express Lanes Project will temporarily close Larimer County Road 16 under I-25 while crews place new bridge deck panels.
