Damage to Bridge Prompts ‘Extensive’ I-25 Closure
Interstate 25 is closed south of Berthoud after a truck hauling a backhoe hit the overpass. The damage to the overpass has also prompted the closure of Weld County Road 34 in both directions.
The accident that occurred Monday evening could close Interstate 25 at mile marker 245 for an extensive amount of time, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation. Bridge inspectors are assessing the situation.
If you commute to the Denver Metro Area, be aware that detours are in place. However, the delays could extend to the Tuesday morning commute. The Colorado Department of Transportation released this information as the closure occurred.
