Travel Time to Denver Doubled


Those of you who have traveled to or from Denver in recent days have noticed a big increase in the amount of time it takes to get to your destination as compared to before crews broke ground on widening the 18-mile gap between Monument and Castle Rock. 

Folks are prone to drive more aggressively when they are in a hurry.  If you are traveling for personal or business purposes and have only allotted an hour for the trip to/from Colorado Springs and Denver,

You will feel rushed.  It will affect your mood. It will affect your driving.

It will increase the likelihood that you will be involved in a car crash.

So what can we do?  The GAP construction traffic is our new normal for at least the next three years.  Any time you must travel the gap, you should now plan for a 50% – 100% increase in the amount of time it will take you to get to your destination.  Mentally prepare yourself for sitting in traffic, because it is not a matter of IF traffic will come to a stand-still on I-25, but WHEN.  

Inform yourself about the current status of construction by checking for updates at any of the following sources:

We encourage our friends and neighbors who must drive the I-25 corridor to/from Denver to allow for extra time and limit distractions while traveling because traffic on this stretch can stop and jam with little warning at any time of day.  If you are hurt in a crash while driving the Gap, contact the Colorado Springs Injury Attorneys at Rosenbaum & Wootton, P.C. by calling or texting us at 719.634.0102 or by clicking on this link to schedule your FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.
