Full I-25 Closure Scheduled for I-25/Cimarron Project Area

Northbound and southbound Interstate 25 will be closed between US 24/Cimarron and south Nevada from 11 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14 until 6 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 15. Lane closures will begin at 9 p.m. Closing the highway is necessary to allow Colorado Springs Utilities to relocate overhead power lines. Motorists are encouraged to use Nevada and Cimarron as alternate exits. Watch for clearly marked detour signs to direct you.  Work is weather dependent and subject to change.
The detour route does not support vehicles with a profile height of more than 14 feet 9 inches due to a Union Pacific Railroad overpass located on south Nevada Avenue, just east of Mill Street. Vehicles requiring a clearance higher than 14 feet 9 inches should use an alternative route during the temporary I-25 closure.

The following is a summary of upcoming project construction activity.
Construction schedules are subject to change based on weather/other unforeseen circumstances.
