South Section Project Benefits: Along I-25 between Greenland Road and Monument, crews will deliver new Express Lanes, wider shoulders, three new wildlife crossings, a reconstruction of the Greenland Road interchange and new ramps at County Line Road.
South Section Traffic Impacts: Soon motorists will notice overnight lane closures on northbound and southbound I-25 to allow crews to safely place concrete barrier to create a work zone on the southern end of the project near Monument. Overnight lane closures will continue throughout construction. Like impacts currently occurring between Plum Creek Parkway and Sky View Lane (Tomah Road), two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction during daytime peak travel hours.
In addition to overnight lane closures, motorists should expect narrower lanes and shoulders, a speed limit reduction to 65 mph, and extended closures of the Greenland and County Line Roads ramps and Monument Hill Road for safety-critical work.

About the Project: CDOT is improving 18 miles of I-25 from south of Castle Rock to Monument by widening the road from two to three lanes in each direction. The new lane will operate as an Express Lane, allowing motorists the choice of taking the Express Lane, allowing motorists the choice of taking the Express Lane for a faster and more reliable travel time in exchange for a toll, or driving the general purpose lanes for free. Carpools with three or more people and motorcyclists will be able to ride the Express Lane for free. Other improvements include widening the shoulders, rebuilding bridges, building new wildlife crossings, resurfacing the new pavement and modernizing technology. The cost of the project is $350 million.
Project is scheduled for completion in 2022.
