I-25 and Santa Fe Drive, Phase IV

This $24 million project began in June 2014 and is scheduled to complete in June 2016. Phases 1.2 and 1.3 were combined as a bridge replacement project that replaced the structures on I-25 over Santa Fe Drive. This project is now complete.

The current phase, known as 1.4 focuses primarily on Santa Fe, Alameda and southbound Kalamath. This project is putting in a single point urban interchange at Santa Fe and I-25 and will make this area similar to University where one light controls all movements.

Phase 1.4 also constructs a bridge over the South Platte River that will carry southbound I-25 off ramp traffic onto southbound Santa Fe Drive

In addition, this project will widen Alameda Avenue at Santa Fe Drive/Kalamath. This project will improve safety for the traveling public in this area and will help to reduce congestion and improve mobility in this heavily traveled section of the metro area.
