Phase one of construction is underway for the Powers Blvd expansion. The new exit off of I25 is south of exit 155 and will be just south of the current Bass Pro Shop. This phase will build the interchange and will connect to Voyager and is expected to be completed in 2021 and cost between $55-65 million.
Phase two will connect the next exit to Powers Blvd at Interquest Parkway/Highway 83. Plans for phase two are still being discussed with no firm budget or timeline in place.
Planning officials believe that connecting Powers to I25 will alleviate congestion along Interquest as well as speed up travel while connecting the north south sections of the city. Travel to the airport will be easy as well as east west travel.
