Glenwood Canyon Bike Path Now Open for Season

April 15, 2011 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - Late spring snow or high water could temporarily close sections of the path.

GARFIELD/EAGLE COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation has opened the Glenwood Canyon Bike Path for the season (last year, the path was opened on April 20).

CDOT closes the Glenwood Canyon Bike Path each winter, when winter maintenance activities on I-70 above can create unsafe conditions on the path. Please note: nearly every season, it has been necessary for CDOT to close the path again for the safety of users, depending upon late spring snow and/or high water.

For information on road conditions, the public may log on to or call 511 from anywhere in the state. To sign up for FREE e-mail and/or wireless updates to road conditions in any chosen area, go to CDOT’s web site and choose the green phone icon in the upper right-hand corner.
