CDOT Begins Work on Wildlife Fencing

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has started work along the I-25 corridor installing wildlife fencing. Work will include concrete panel rehabilitation, deer guard installations and wildlife fencing construction. The project work zone will be along northbound and southbound I-25 from E. Wolfensberger Road in Castle Rock to Lincoln Avenue near Lone Tree.

Crews will be working both daytime and nighttime hours throughout the project, which is expected to go from April to December 2022. Daytime working hours will be focused on building wildlife fencing, guardrails, and two deer guard installations at Happy Canyon Road. Nighttime working hours will primarily be dedicated to roadwork patching and began in late April.

The concrete rehabilitation will improve and prolong the life of the road surface, creating a smoother and safer travel path for motorists. Building wildlife fencing and deer guards will significantly reduce the number of accidents related to animals crossing the interstate.

Traffic Impacts

Daytime working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Nighttime working hours will be from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Friday.
Single and double lane closures, with alternating traffic intermittently in either direction, are expected regularly during nighttime hours throughout the duration of the project. These lane reductions may slow traffic and cause congestion but are not anticipated to cause major delays.

Motorists should slow down as they approach the work zones, drive with caution, allow extra space between vehicles, and give themselves extra travel time.
