I-70 Traffic Stops at Georgetown Hill

March 12, 2012 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Central Eastern Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - CLEAR CREEK COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will be stopping traffic on Interstate 70 at Georgetown Hill later this week for rock mitigation work, weather permitting.

Beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 14, and Thursday, March 15, 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 requires a postponement, work will again be rescheduled.

On days when traffic stops are not taking place, 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.   This week’s lane closure is in place today and continues through tomorrow.
