State transportation officials say the mutli-year Interstate 25/Cimarron Interchange project has reached the halfway point, with traffic switching in coming weeks to new permanent pavement in the northbound lanes of I-25 from South Nevada Avenue to the Bijou Street exit.
Then, in November, the old I-25 bridge over U.S. 24 will be demolished, closing the road under the bridge for a seven-hour stretch during a weekend, along with the northbound ramps. After the demolition, the project moves into Phase 2 — work on the northbound I-25 off- and on-ramps. The project continues through 2017.
