A brand new overpass opened to traffic on Paseo Del Norte Monday morning.
The Jefferson overpass, which is an above-grade bridge for eastbound and westbound Paseo Del Norte traffic, is one of six major improvements of the Paseo/I-25 Interchange project. It is designed to allow Paseo Del Norte traffic to flow freely over Jefferson Street NE while still providing access to the interchange and better flow for northbound and southbound traffic on Jefferson.
A number of major closures took place on Paseo over the weekend while crews finished up the overpass.
Construction for the project is expected to be completed in December 2014.
