I-70 Traffic Stops Tomorrow at Georgetown Hill

April 27, 2011 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Central Eastern Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - CLEAR CREEK COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is planning to stop traffic on Interstate 70 at Georgetown Hill on Thursday, April 28, while rockfall fencing or rock removals are taking place in areas above the highway. Traffic stops are required to maximize safety for the traveling public.

Beginning at about 10:30 a.m., drivers can expect traffic stops up to 20 minutes on eastbound and westbound I-70.   Westbound traffic will be stopped at the Georgetown Interchange (Exit 228); eastbound traffic at the Silver Plume Interchange (Exit 226).  CDOT expects to stop traffic several times throughout the day, with the stops concluding by late afternoon.

Traffic stops initially were scheduled to take place on Tuesday, but work was delayed due to snowy weather and the unavailability of construction equipment.
