Greenland interchange work begins July 17

Road to go from single-lane box culvert to full two-lane underpass, will include a wildlife crossing

Posted

Improvements on the Greenland Road interchange will begin July 17 as part of the I-25 South Gap project.

Crews will begin to rebuild the Greenland Road interchange from a single-lane box culvert to a full two-lane underpass and build a wildlife crossing north of Greenland Road.

As part of the Gap project to improve safety and travel reliability, this construction will require a new traffic pattern called a crossover on I-25 at the Greenland Road interchange so crews can safely do the work.

Drivers will still have ramp access, but the northbound ramps will shift a quarter-mile to the south. Two lanes will remain open in each direction on I-25 during the daytime and high-peak travel periods.

To safely set up the crossover, crews will need one overnight single-lane closure of northbound I-25 at the Greenland Road Interchange, from 6 pm. Wednesday, July 17, to 6 a.m. Thursday, July 18.

Motorists will drive the completed configuration starting Thursday, July 18. All construction schedules are weather-dependent.

When driving the crossover, motorists should slow down and exercise caution. Drivers can expect a significant grade change in the area, so pay extra attention when driving in this area. Stay the course, but plan a little extra time to get to your destination. Slow down, stay alert and watch for crews.

For information about the project, call the project hotline at 720-745-5435 or go to i25gap.codot.gov. You can also sign up for email updates at i25gap@codot.us or text alearts by texting I25GAP to 21000. The project's Facebook page is Facebook.com/I25SouthGapProject.
