Temporary Traffic Signal Installation

Motorists will encounter single right lane restrictions Thursday, March 3 from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. on eastbound and westbound Cimarron at the I-25 southbound on-ramp intersection. These closures are needed to install temporary traffic signals.

Phase 1 Work Begins March 13

Expect overnight lane closures beginning March 13 for the next several months on I-25 (between Colorado Avenue and south Nevada Avenue/Tejon Street) and on US 24 (between 8th Street and I-25) for removals, restriping and setting barrier. This work will prepare for future traffic realignments. Watch for weekly eAlerts for the most up-to-date information.
