The southern half of the 15th Street bridge over I-25 will be torn down this weekend and will require multiple closures.

According to CDOT, I-25 will close completely, in both directions, from I-70 to Speer Boulevard from 11 p.m. on Friday night through 9 a.m. on Saturday morning and again Saturday night at 11 p.m. through 9 a.m. on Sunday morning.

Various other lane closures will also take place from Friday through Sunday. 15th Street over I-25 will be closed from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. On Friday, one lane of northbound and southbound I-25 from I-70 and Speer Boulevard will be closed starting at 7 p.m. with a second lane closing at 9 p.m. 

Sunday, one lane of NB and SB I-25 from I-70 to Speer will be closed starting at 7 p.m. An additional lane will close by 9 p.m. All lanes of I-25 will close at 11 p.m. and reopen by 5:30 a.m. on Monday.

To get around the expected major delays, several alternate routes have been suggested by CDOT:

Southbound I-25: Exit onto westbound I-70 and take I-70 to Federal Boulevard. Travel south on Federal Boulevard to Speer Boulevard and then south on Speer Boulevard to I-25.

Northbound I-25: Exit onto northbound Speer Boulevard and take Speer Boulevard to Federal Boulevard. Then travel north on Federal Boulevard to I-70. Take I-70 east to I-25.

Fifteenth Street: Motorists on 15th Street will be detoured to Little Raven Street to 20th Street and then to Central Street.
