The Paseo Del Norte/I-25 project is always inconvenient, but due to a big closure this weekend, it's been a major headache for many drivers.

For the entire weekend, the north and southbound lanes on the interstate were shut down at Paseo as crews worked on a bridge. Drivers were detoured off I-25 at Paseo. Northbound drivers weren't able to get back on the interstate until Alameda, causing a big backup in the area.

One driver told KOB Eyewitness News 4 he waited nearly 30 minutes in traffic.

All lanes will reopen Monday morning at 6 a.m.
