CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Hopefully, traffic won’t be such a pain anymore on southbound Interstate 25.

On Monday, the Colorado Department of Transportation will begin a pilot plan to ease congestion by turning the left lane of the freeway into a direct lane for through traffic from County Line Road to Lincoln Street.

“If you’re going southbound on I-25 in that area and don’t need to exit, get onto that lane,” CDOT’s Amy Ford said. “It’s like a zipline; hooks you in at County Line and zips all the way south, past Lincoln Avenue.”

CDOT will monitor traffic for the next few weeks to determine if the plan will become permanent.

It will also ask for the public’s input by clicking the link.
