To complete the third and final phase of the Centennial Boulevard Extension project the ramps at the intersection of Fontanero Street and Interstate 25 will require two partial closures, each lasting for approximately three months.
There will be a full closure of the northbound on-ramp and southbound off-ramp at I-25 and Fontanero Street starting on Monday, Feb. 27. The westbound lanes of Fontanero Street under the interstate will also be closed, resulting in a two-way traffic shift to the eastbound lanes. Detours will be in place to direct traffic around the closure.
Once work is completed in on the northside of the street, the construction work will switch and the southbound on-ramp and northbound off-ramp at Fontanero will see closures. These closures are necessary for the safety of the traveling public and construction workers and allow for faster construction timelines minimizing overall traffic impacts to the public.
The new Centennial Boulevard Extension, partially opened from Fillmore to Chestnut streets in October 2022, improves transportation connections, stormwater facilities and provides increased mobility options to west side neighborhoods. This project provides a critical transportation connection between Fillmore Street and the I-25 / Fontanero Street interchange.
The $20 million project is funded through the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority (PPRTA). The roadway is anticipated to be completed by Fall 2023.
