Safety improvements at I-25 & Cimarron interchange

State Agency responds to concerns from drivers

Safety Improvements at I-25 &...

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado Department of Transportation revealed Tuesday measures that it has taken to improve safety and ease of driving through the interchange improvement project at Interstate 25 and Cimarron Street in Colorado Springs.

The department said it is adding signs to help guide drivers, replacing signs that have been blown away by strong winds, striping lanes to clearly mark them and widening at least one exit ramp to create more merging room for drivers.

Some drivers have expressed concern about lanes being too narrow and confusing, difficulty in following lanes at night and several tight turns and curves.

The department said weather changes have made it difficult to keep lanes clearly marked and the agency had a striping crew working during the day Tuesday to take advantage of better weather.

Some drivers want to see more improvements at the interchange while others are satisfied with the progress that is being made.

The project started last year and is scheduled for completion at the end of this year.

For more information about the project, call the department's hotline at 719-302-6781.
