Current Construction Projects
The project to add a third lane in each direction for express traffic on Interstate 25 from Johnstown to Fort Collins has begun in Loveland, with construction underway to widen the highway from Crossroads Boulevard to Colorado Highway 392.
Travelers in and around Loveland will be the first to encounter North I-25 Express Lanes construction zones, first stretching northbound 3 miles to Crossroads Boulevard, then another 2 miles to the Kechter Road overpass. Construction on the southbound lanes of the same 5-mile stretch will follow.
Two lanes in each direction on I-25 will remain open during daytime hours throughout the construction process, with lane closures restricted to nighttime hours with lighter traffic loads.
Loveland also will be affected by the next phases of the $302 million, multi-year project. Those include major reconstruction of the I-25 interchange at Colorado Highway 402, elevation of the bridges that cross the Big Thompson River, improvements at the U.S. Highway 34 interchange and widening of the highway through Loveland.
The project will also feature multimodal transit, pedestrian and bicycle accommodations throughout I-25’s path through Loveland.
The City of Loveland is a community partner in the express lanes initiative with a $6 million commitment, paid in annual $2 million installments through the project’s duration. In addition, the Centerra Metro District has contributed $6 million. The two Loveland contributions account for almost half the $25 million in commitments from cities and counties along north I-25.
Track progress at the Colorado Transportation Department’s North I-25 project website, www.codot.gov/projects/north-i-25. The website also features answers to questions and a detailed fact sheet on the project.
