If you were planning on taking I-25 somewhere on Saturday night, you'll want to steer clear of Cimarron Street.

Construction crews will shutdown one northbound lane of the interstate at that exit for overnight construction work, starting at 7 p.m. While the intersection won't be completely blocked, it might be best to avoid it if you're susceptible to road rage.

I-25 Bridge Work to Impact Traffic this Weekend

COLORADO SPRINGS — Bridge work by the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) will require lane closures on Interstate 25 at Cimarron Street overnight Saturday.
Between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, shoulder closures will be in place on Cimarron (U.S. 24) under I-25. Traffic impacts are expected to be minimal.
Beginning at 7 p.m., only one lane of northbound I-25 will be open at Cimarron for bridge deck repairs, including concrete pouring. The closure continues overnight, with all lanes expected to reopen to traffic by 7 a.m. Sunday. While the lane closures are in place, the Colorado State Patrol will assist with traffic control and enforcing a reduced speed limit through the work zone. Drivers should expect significant delays during the first hours of the closure, with traffic slowing anticipated overnight.
Updated information regarding traffic impacts on this or other CDOT projects is available at or by calling 511.
