COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Interstate 25 will be closed at Fillmore Street Tuesday night for construction.

The highway will be closed between 9 p.m. Tuesday and 5 a.m. Wednesday so crews can pour the bridge deck for the eastbound Fillmore Street bridge over the highway. Fillmore Street will also be closed over the highway from 8 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Interstate 25 traffic will be detoured using the Fillmore Street ramps. Drivers will be able to turn right off the ramps, but won’t be able to turn left onto Fillmore Street.

Drivers can also use the Garden of the Gods Road and Fontanero Street interchanges to avoid the closure.
