Overnight closures at Cimarron/I-25 through Jan. 13; new ramps coming

       Motorists can expect various overnight closures on Highway 24/Cimarron Street and at the I-25 off- and on-ramps for the rest of this week (Jan. 10-13). These closures are required by the contractor, Kraemer North America, to restripe lanes and reconfigure traffic on the southbound and northbound I-25 ramps and on Cimarron, a press release states.
       The interstate will remain open.
       The work had been scheduled to start Jan. 9, but was postponed because of the high winds. According to the press release, project crews spent that night instead "repairing/replacing traffic control devices and realigning signal heads at I-25 and US 24 interchange displaced by wind."
       Project plans call for the new northbound and southbound off-ramps - which have been under construction for a few months - to open in January.
       Construction schedules are subject to change based on weather or unforeseen circumstances, the press release adds.
       The $113 million Colorado Department of Transportation interchange replacement project started in May 2015 and is due for completion by the end of this year.
