Business Loop I-70 - Limon

Home » Guides » Colorado » Business Loop I-70 - Limon

   

The Limon business loop coincides with portions of U.S. 24, U.S. 40 and U.S. 287 along a 4.26-mile route through the city. Business Loop I-70 sees three interchanges with I-70 while joining the freeway with Downtown along Main Street.

Before the Limon bypass (I-70) was constructed, U.S. 40 & 287 expanded into a dual highway at West Limon, with a grade separation for U.S. 24 above the eastbound lanes. This configuration was later replaced with a folded diamond interchange. Main Street was eventually relocated northward to an at-grade intersection with Business Loop I-70 in place of those ramps.
