Traffic Advisory - Nighttime ramp closures at I-25 and Mesa Ridge


Last updated 9/13/2022 at 9:28pm

The Colorado Department of Transportation and contractor SEMA Construction will temporarily close southbound I-25 and CO 16 (Mesa Ridge Parkway) on- and off-ramps for concrete paving operations. Nightly ramp closures at (Mile Point 132) are scheduled 7 p.m.-4:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 15, and Friday, Sept. 16.

Use signed detour route. Fort Carson personnel may want to consider using alternate gates.

Head-to-head traffic continues on I-25, separated by temporary barrier with 11-ft. lanes and 2-ft. shoulders. This traffic configuration will be in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Normal working hours will be 7 a.m.-9 p.m., Monday through Friday. The speed limit in this area has been reduced to 55 MPH. Slight traffic delays are expected and motorists are urged to use extra caution while traveling in the new traffic pattern. Fines will be double through the construction zone.

A traffic switch is currently in place from S. Academy Blvd. to US-85 (Santa Fe). Use extreme caution, speed limit 55 MPH.

A Courtesy Patrol will be driving the work zone and will respond to incidents when notified. Hours of operation are 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday through Friday and holidays.

Traffic switch on Colorado Highway 94

As part of the MAMSIP CO 94 improvements, the Phase 2 Traffic Shift is planned for Saturday, Sept. 17, 8 p.m. to Sunday, Sept. 18, 5 a.m. for shifting traffic to the eastbound side of CO 94 in a two-lane configuration for westbound improvements to take place. There will be a single lane traffic operation in place during the traffic shift controlled by traffic flaggers so expect delays. A detour will be in place for shifting northbound Blaney Road south of CO 94 east of the current road access - motorists will use the detour set up on the new Jug Handle configuration to access CO 94 just east of the current access point. This will allow the improvements to Blaney Road south of CO 94 to take place. North Blaney Road will remain closed during this phase.

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change.

Flagging operations with alternating lane closures and alternating one-way traffic continues on Santa Fe Ave. and Charter Oak Ranch Road. Mon., Sept. 12 to Fri., Sept. 16, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., to allow crews can continue earthwork activities. A detour is in place. Use extreme caution in the area.
