The I-25-Cimarron Interchange in Colorado Springs accommodates more than 150,000 vehicles per day, making it one of the region’s busiest. As the area continued to experience growth, CDOT recognized the need to add capacity, improve safety for all travelers, make extensive multi-modal improvements, and better connect the community (all while creating something aesthetically pleasing to serve as the gateway to the region).
The $115 million I-25/Cimarron Interchange Design-Build project was the second largest transportation project constructed in Colorado Springs at a time when the city is undergoing a revitalization with numerous major developments. The project replaced the old partial clover leaf interchange that was constructed in 1958 with a new Single Point Diamond Interchange to create the gateway to downtown and mountain communities to the west. The end result is an interchange ready to safely accommodate additional traffic for all modes of transportation.
