Closure of eastbound I-70B at US 6 from June 21-22

June 20, 2017 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - Detour will be in place for 24-hour closure

MESA COUNTY – Beginning at 7p.m. on Wednesday, June 21, construction crews will close I-70B eastbound at the US 6 interchange in Grand Junction, from Rimrock Avenue to American Way. Motorists can connect back to eastbound I-70B by following posted detours along Rimrock Avenue and American Way. An alternate detour involves taking 25 Road south to Riverside Parkway, which will lead motorists into downtown Grand Junction.

This configuration will be in place until 7p.m. on Thursday, June 22. I-70B eastbound will reopen that evening.

"CDOT’s top priority is the safety of construction crews and motorists alike,” says CDOT Project Engineer Eric Peterson. “While we realize the impacts of this closure, we believe it is the best option for this phase of the project.”

TRAFFIC IMPACTS: Width restrictions are not in effect, and crews do not expect significant delays. Please follow posted speed limits and pay close attention to flaggers’ directions.
