CDOT traffic impacts in Glenwood Canyon, Oct. 25-29

Newly poured concrete on the westbound parapet wall at MP 123.5/Blue Gulch work zone.

Progress this week

Crews completed the removal of shoring materials on the westbound deck of I-70 on Thursday night (10/21) during an overnight closure. The work was completed from the safe vantage point of the closed eastbound lanes. 

Concrete was poured for the eastbound retaining wall footer at Mile Point 123.5 on the riverside. 

Currently there are no overnight closures anticipated on the project for the end of this week, over the weekend or next week. 

Debris removal of the Concrete Box Culvert (CBC) at MP 124.5/Devils Hole location continues.

Upcoming work includes concrete paving and asphalt patching at various locations. 

Motorists planning to travel on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon should pay attention to road conditions on cotrip.org and weather forecasts. Rest area and recreation path information is also available at cotrip.org. I-70 safety closure information can be found on CDOT’s website by clicking here.
