I-25 through the springs is opened up now. the construction is finished and speed limit is 65 through town from briargate(on the north) to south academy(Ft. Carson). there's a stretch northbound around Rockrimmon where they are doing some work. It slows to 45 and the right lane is closed
But you're not going to Hartsel .... you're going to 11 Mile
Hartsel is another 26+ miles from Lake George , Then you'd have to backtrack another 12 - 15 or so miles to 11 Mile depending where you want to fish.
The turnoff to 11 Mile off of Highway 24 is the west edge of Lake George , then 10 or so minutes over the hill that drops into 11 Mile .
