The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will add express lanes in both directions of I-25 from Johnstown to Fort Collins.

 

CDOT approved the $248 million contract with Kraemer/IHC to add express lanes, replace aging bridges, widen other bridges, create new pedestrian and bicycle access under I-25 at Kendall Parkway, and connect the Poudre River Regional Trail under I-25.

 

According to CDOT, construction will begin this year with a completion set for late 2021. Two lanes of travel in each direction will remain open during the daytime, with lane closures at night.

 

Negotiations on the final contract were finalized at the end of December. Officials in Larimer and Weld counties, Fort Collins, Berthoud, Johnstown, Loveland, Windsor and Timnath contributed a total of $55 million to this project, as well as McWhinney and the Prospect Interchange Task Force.
