CDOT Projects in the Pikes Peak Region

Join the Colorado Department of Transportation as they share with us some of the great projects going on in our region. Learn many of the facet of the project such as scheduling, risk management, planning, how they partner with other organizations such as the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments.

Projects such as the

CO 21 (Powers Boulevard) and Old Ranch Road

Crews on this project will build a four-lane freeway from north of Union Boulevard to CO 83, move the existing bridge over the new mainline CO 21 (Powers Boulevard) and shift mainline traffic to CO 21. The at-grade intersections will remain and carry only ramp traffic.

CO 21 (Powers Boulevard) Widening Fountain Boulevard to Platte Ave.

This project will reduce congestion and improve safety on CO 21 by widening two roads and adding turn lanes.

I-25 and Fillmore Street Interchange

Construction on the Interstate 25 and Fillmore Street Interchange project in Colorado Springs is progressing as crews work to complete work on the new Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI). The project converted the existing interchange into a DDI configuration—the second along the Front Range and the third in Colorado.

The new interchange provides a more efficient traffic flow by allowing for continuous transition on and off the highway, increased traffic capacity and reducing the conflict points at intersections. Additionally, larger pedestrian walkways and bike paths will improve safety through the corridor.

And projects in process such as the

I-25 / Cimarron Street (US 24) Interchange Design-Build Project

One of the region's busiest interstate highway interchanges is preparing for a multi-million dollar makeover. The Interstate-25/Cimarron Interchange reconstruction is the second largest highway project in Colorado Springs history (COSMIX—Colorado Springs Metropolitan Expansion Project: 2004-2008—is the largest).

The project, slated for completion in December 2017, will transform the decades-old structure into a more efficient and more attractive gateway to Colorado Springs, El Paso County and the mountain communities to the west.

Following pre-construction activity in June 2015, local, state, and federal transportation officials and organizations realized the culmination of years of collaborative efforts to study, plan and fund the project.

I-25 and Cimarron Street is a key local and regional interchange that serves as a primary connection to downtown Colorado Springs to the east, and to neighborhoods and mountain communities to the west.
