I live off 25 and travel it often. Some things to consider. They are widening 25 from larkspur all the way to castlerock NB and SB - it's 2 lanes with chicanes and stop and go when traffic is heavy, plan for it. I would travel it very early morning, early weekends or late night. Any other time will be a hassle especially if the weather is bad.
In denver, DO NOT TAKE 470 east toll road around unless you are ready for an 80 to 100 toll bill. If you do want to take the toll around. Register for an account pay the initial deposit and get an expresstoll transponder and it will be half the cost plus you can use the express lanes on the north end of Denver on i 25 as well.
Other than that, plan for crazy weather if you are planning trips in spring through Colorado. I just got 18 in of snow 2 days ago.
