I-25 potholes in Fountain to be fixed


Last updated 11/29/2021 at 11:03am


Expect single-lanes closures on I-25 through Fountain this week as crews make road repairs.

Motorists will see paving work along Interstate-25 as the Colorado Department of Transportation performs emergency paving as part of the I-25 Rehab Component of the Military Access, Mobility and Safety Improvement Program.

With winter on the horizon, CDOT needs to fill potholes with asphalt and make repairs on I-25 between Santa Fe Boulevard and South Academy Boulevard. This work will require daytime single-lane closures and is anticipated to be complete by Dec. 3. Paving work is weather and temperature dependent and therefore cannot be applied until conditions are warm and dry.


Northbound and Southbound Single-Lane Daytime Closure Required

Tuesday, Nov. 30 through Thursday, Dec. 2

9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday

I-25 between approximately South Academy Boulevard and Santa Fe Avenue (milepost 127.5 – 135.5)

Speed limit reduced to 55 mph in work zone.

No work on Fridays and weekends.

All work is weather-dependent and will be rescheduled if operations cannot be completed.

Alternate routes are advised.

Traffic fines will be doubled in the work zone. Motorists should slow down as they approach the work zones, drive with caution, allow extra space between vehicles, and give themselves extra travel time.

This work is part of the Military Access, Mobility & Safety Improvement Project (MAMSIP). MAMSIP is comprised of four discrete road projects in the Pikes Peak region, all of which are strategically important in the movement of personnel and equipment between nationally significant military facilities.

Project Overview

Interstate-25 – Safety and efficiency improvements

The improvements to I-25 addressed in this project are located along an approximately 7.5-mile segment of the corridor beginning at South Academy Boulevard and extending to the Santa Fe Avenue (CO 85/87) exit at Fountain (MP 128), which exits to Gate 19 of Fort Carson.
