Outstanding Accessibility and Visibility
From well-connected interstates and highways to scenic mountain roads, traveling throughout the Colorado Springs region is a breeze. Interstate 25 runs conveniently through Colorado Springs, heading north through Denver into Wyoming, and south to New Mexico. For east or west access, U.S. Highway 24 runs through Colorado Springs and connects with I-70 to the east at Limon, CO, and near Vail in the mountains to the west. There is even a road that leads to the summit of Colorado’s most famous mountain: Pikes Peak.
Interchange Reconstruction Project
at I-25 and Cimarron Street (US 24)
- One of the region’s busiest interstate highway interchanges is preparing for a multi-million dollar makeover. The I-25/Cimarron Interchange reconstruction is the second largest highway project in Colorado Springs history (COSMIX—Colorado Springs Metropolitan Expansion Project: 2004-2008—is the largest).
- The project, completed in 2017 at a cost of $113M transforms the decades-old structure into a more efficient and more attractive gateway to Colorado Springs, El Paso County and the mountain communities to the west. The improvements enhance operations, correct existing safety and design deficiencies, and serve the anticipated short-term and long-term travel demand in this area.
