The Colorado Department of Transportation is constructing a major improvement project on Colo. 115 between Colorado Springs and Penrose. Single lane closures and traffic shifts start today between Roca Roja Circle (mile point 35.5) and Old Cañon City Road (MP 38.5). Crews are preparing for a major traffic pattern change, which will reduce approximately three miles of Colo. 115 to one lane in each direction.

This 18-month project improves roadway and bridge safety on Colo. 115 from MP 27.7 to MP 39 by adding passing lanes, right turn lanes, reconstructing Rock Creek Bridge, and performing major rehabilitation or reconstruction of cracked and distressed pavement.

The initial phase of construction, which is expected to last through spring 2023, will focus on the northern three miles of the work zone (MP 35.5 - MP 39). Crews will primarily work during daylight hours Monday through Friday. However, night and weekend work are anticipated for several work activities to expedite construction and reduce traffic impacts.

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. Weekly updates will be available on the project web page. Text CO115 to 866-762-3640 to receive traffic alerts.
