A major road project is moving forward. The Colorado Department of Transportation will close all lanes of Interstate 25 between Santa Fe Drive and 6th Avenue.
Drivers are being urged to use the alternate routes to avoid the Interstate 25 closures this weekend.
Multiple construction projects along the interstate will result in closures starting Friday, and CDOT is advising motorists to find alternative routes.

One northbound lane of Interstate 25 between 84th Avenue and Thornton Parkway is closed until Monday morning.
A stolen car smashed into another vehicle at a busy intersection in Thornton early Thursday morning. The crash sent the suspect, passengers and those in the other vehicle to the hospital.

Thornton police say a motorcycle officer who was hit by a car on Interstate 25 faces a very long recovery.
The teenager who was behind the wheel, under the influence of several drugs, when he crashed and killed a man on a motorcycle, was sentenced on Friday. Joshua Wittig will spend the next 10 and a half years behind bars.
