More Colorado stimulus work begins Monday
LOVELAND, Colorado – A stretch of Interstate 25 in northern Colorado is being repaved with federal stimulus dollars.
The Colorado Department of Transportation said four miles of northbound I-25 would be fixed between U.S. 34 and Colorado 392 near Loveland. New guard rails will also be added along the median and new pipe edge drains will be installed as part of the $7 million project.
The work was set to begin Monday night. Construction will be done between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. each night except Fridays and Saturdays. During construction, northbound I-25 will be reduced to just one lane and delays are expected.
Colorado is receiving about $400 million in stimulus money for highway projects. The money was divided among the state’s six transportation regions.
