Traffic impacts can be expected northbound and southbound on Colorado Highway 9, Monday through Friday, during daylight hours, according to a news release.

A temporary lane will be in place detouring traffic around construction from mile marker 130 to 131. Speeds will be reduced to 25 mph through the temporary lanes. These temporary detour lanes are necessary while crews install a wildlife underpass structure and will remain in place until underpass construction is complete.

Motorists can expect one lane of alternating traffic and as much as 45 minute delays through the construction zone.

Spring Creek Road and Blue Valley Acres residents are advised to plan for extra time exiting their neighborhoods. Wide loads are restricted to 12 feet.

Motorists, cyclists and bikers, should exercise extreme caution and follow reduced posted speed limits and flaggers’ instructions. Adhere to the 35 or 45 mile per hour speed limits as posted.
