This may affect travelers trying to get from Laramie or Denver to Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, or Lake George on Friday and Saturday, and especially those trying to get back to the Denver airport on Sunday.
Notice from CDOT:
I-25 will be closed in central Denver between Santa Fe and 6th Avenue for bridge demolition and paving.
