I70 in Colorado, 3-6-2016


Continued rockfall mitigation will close Interstate 70 through Glenwood Canyon on Tuesday, officials said.

The road will be closed from 9 4 p.m. Tuesday from the Glenwood Springs 116 exit to the Dotsero 133 exit, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

A helicopter will be used to secure fencing while CDOT focuses on continued road repairs. The work is in an effort to start using both lanes of traffic instead of solely the eastbound lanes following a February rock slide.

Delays of 30 minutes to one hour are still possible through the canyon, CDOT said.

Rest areas in Hanging Lake, Grizzly Creek and Shoshone remain closed.

You can take a detour route over Independence Pass or Cottonwood Pass but only if you are on a snowmobile.

Guess lots of folks tried those passes because people allowed their GPS to do the thinking for them not realizing these passes are closed in the winter.
