We drove through this area yesterday. There was no significant construction anywhere on I25 through Denver. We went as far north as Loveland. The construction is between Denver and Colorado Springs. Northbound has many lane shifts and walls on both sides in many areas. Southbound wasn't quite as bad, but still wouldn't be fun driving a motorhome.

If you're coming from Colorado Springs going north you may want to avoid I25 and use Hwy 83 to Franktown. Then head west back over to I25. That will get you around the construction mess.

If you mean US36 to I-270 to I-70 to I--225 to I-25. No.
That route is much longer and frequently stop and go especially on the I-70 portion in pre-covid times. Haven't been on it since the shutdown/slowdown so can't say for sure now.

Concur. Major work on I-25 between Castle Rock and Colorado Springs.

We just came around the 470E with our 5th wheel 3 days ago and the tolls are suspended while they finish construction on the new tolls!!
What a beautiful ride with little to no traffic on Thursday!
Enjoy the ride!

Good advice, if you are not familiar with the sores just take the shortest route -timing will help.

The main reason itís crowded is because itís the best route.

Done it hundreds of times - it will get you through the city, just avoid rush hour if you can.

JMHO,
