I-70 Traffic Stops at Georgetown Hill Now Scheduled for Next Week

February 1, 2012 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Central Eastern Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - CLEAR CREEK COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is postponing the traffic stops scheduled for tomorrow on Interstate 70 at Georgetown Hill since snow showers are forecast for the area.

Rock mitigation work now is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, February 7.  Beginning at 10:30 a.m., traffic on eastbound and westbound I-70 will be stopped for 20 minutes, approximately twice an hour.  Westbound traffic will be stopped at the Georgetown interchange; eastbound traffic at Silver Plume.  Safety considerations require full traffic stops.  Work will continue until approximately 5 p.m.

If adverse weather or equipment requirements necessitate another postponement, work will be rescheduled later next week or during the week of February 13.

At all other times, Monday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. until dark, drivers can expect a right lane closure on westbound I-70, from Georgetown to near Silver Plume, for additional mitigation work, including rockfall fence and barrier installation.
