Short-term Traffic Stops Begin Next Week on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon

April 13, 2018 - Delays expected

Crews will perform short-term traffic stops beginning the week of April 16 and again the week of April 23. These stops are necessary to perform the safety-critical work happening on the slopes above the interstate.

Crews will use a crane to remove part of the old and damaged rockfall barrier, and replace it with the new, higher-capacity rockfall fence.
