Do yourself a favor: Don't drive on I-25 through Denver this weekend
Carmageddon is making its way to the mile high city this weekend.
Interstate 25 will be closed in both directions between Sante Fe Dr. and 6th Ave. from 9 p.m. Friday until 8 a.m. Saturday and then again from 9 p.m. Saturday until 5 a.m. Monday.
The Colorado Department of Transportation is closing the highway to work on the "Gap Lane Project." The project will add an extra lane to northbound I-25 by narrowing all of the existing lanes and shoulders.
The goal of the project is to alleviate rush hour congestion in the northbound lanes of I-25 through the stretch. CDOT says it's a temporary fix until funding can be found for a more permanent solution.
The north bridge of US 6 over I-25 will also be demolished during the project.
