Week of Sept. 27-Oct. 1, 2021
I-70 Glenwood Canyon 2021 Emergency Project
Mile Point 123.5 Blue Gulch
Progress this week
Crews continued drilling locations for shoring towers in the eastbound lanes. The shoring will
secure the damaged infrastructure so repairs can begin on the eastbound retaining wall.
Debris removal and repairs to the damaged Concrete Box Culvert (CBC) at MP 123.5/Blue
Repairs to the damaged parapet wall on the westbound lanes continues. The project team has
started clearing debris from the recreation path at MP 126 to 127.
There are six locations identified in Glenwood Canyon as part of the River Recovery. The team
is working with the Army Corp of Engineers on the permitting process to begin that work.
Rainy weather may cause additional material flows and I-70 closures in Glenwood Canyon in
the coming months. 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.
