Westbound Paseo will be closed from Interstate 25 to Second Street. The closure includes the Paseo off-ramp at Jefferson.

Northbound and southbound Jefferson will be closed at Paseo.

Today, a single lane will be open at a time on the north frontage road of Paseo, where flaggers will direct traffic.

Several closures are planned on Sunday only. They are:

  • Eastbound Paseo del Norte will be closed from Second Street to I-25 from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • The southbound I-25 frontage road will be closed at Alameda from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The closures will allow crews to prepare for a realignment of westbound traffic on Paseo del Norte beginning on Tuesday.
