US 24 ITS Fiber Optic, Between Woodland Park and Colorado Springs (anticipated to be complete Fall, 2019)
The US 24 ITS project is a fiber optic installation project, taking place between the City of Woodland Park and Interstate-25/Cimarron Street in Colorado Springs (17 miles). The project is designed to maximize the operational efficiency and management of the existing roadway infrastructure through the use of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and devices. The fiber optics project is part of CDOT's Smart Mobility Plan, a 5-10 year plan for statewide technology deployment.
Work will generally take place outside the pavement area or in the shoulder area. In that instance, work may take place Mondays through Fridays. When work is scheduled overnight in areas where work outside the travel lanes is not possible, the outside edge of the travel lane pavement may be impacted.
