Crews to Complete I-70 Bridge Repairs Aug. 20 Between Wolcott & Edwards

July 31, 2018 -

EAGLE COUNTY—On Monday, Aug. 20, crews expect to complete bridge repairs on I-70 between Wolcott and Edwards, Colorado.

Travel Impacts

  • Through Aug. 6, travelers will continue using a cross-over, two-way configuration detour on westbound I-70. The detour removed all traffic from the bridge, expediting the project and minimizing the travel impacts.
  • For the remainder of the project, expect one-lane closures and reduced speed limits of 45 mph in both directions of I-70.

The project's primary objective is preventative maintenance to the concrete bridge deck and steel girders. While the bridge repairs were minor, they were crucial to mitigating deficiencies and providing upgrades to the bridge's structural integrity.
