Major gateway interchange reconfiguration project in Colorado Springs, Colorado
Aesthetic treatments for interchange structures including bridges, walls and paving were taken through final design as part of a design-build method of delivery. Xeric landscape within the interchange softened steep slopes and areas along ramps. Custom wall formliners created by Scott Systems and Siloam slab walls with reclaimed sections of a former bank building added to the uniqueness of this site. Fountain Creek restoration was also included to stabilize the banks and re-introduce native riparian vegetation to the corridor.
