The frontage road on the east side of Interstate 25 between Mulberry Street and Prospect Road will be permanently closed starting July 6.
The closure is due to widening of I-25 as part of the $600 million North I-25 Express Lane project from Berthoud to Fort Collins.
Business access will be maintained on the frontage road off Mulberry Street, but drivers will not be able to continue south to Prospect Road.
CDOT has closed other I-25 frontage road sections along the project because of widening as well as for safety reasons, citing that the roads are too close to I-25 and create the potential for dangerous head-on collisions.
Crews continue to work on the complete reconfiguration of the Prospect Road and U.S. Highway 34 interchanges, the Kendall Parkway bus slip near Centerra and bridges south of Loveland.
When completed in 2024, the project will add an express lane in each direction of I-25, replace aging bridges, make interchanges safer and more efficient, improve infrastructure for bus transit along the I-25 corridor, add carpool and transit facilities, and create new pedestrian and bicycle access.
