CONE ZONES: I-70 detour 4/19-4/20; Asphalt Overlay to Start 4/17

I-70 Approaching Exit 116 Intermittent 15-minute Holds
Monday to Wednesday (4/17-4/19), from 7 AM to 5 PM, motorists should anticipate 15-minute intermittent holds on both eastbound and westbound I-70 approaching Exit 116. These holds are necessary for safety critical overhead work over I-70 for the new traffic bridge.

I-70 Night Detour to Sixth Street: Wednesday, Apr. 19 and Thursday, Apr. 20 8PM to 6AM
All I-70 traffic (eastbound and westbound) will be detoured onto east Sixth Street. Both eastbound and westbound traffic will merge into a one-lane configuration and will be detoured through Sixth Street in Glenwood Springs via a break-in-barrier on I-70 near Yampah Vapor Caves. The Grand Avenue Bridge will be closed during this time.

Asphalt Overlay Schedule Announced
Beginning Monday, Apr. 17, crews will begin improving 40 pedestrian ramps and replacing 5,600-feet of guardrail along US Hwy 6. These activities are part of a 2-month paving overlay project that will improve three areas (please see the link for a color-coded map):
1. US Hwy 6 from just west of Storm King Drive to the CO-82 intersection (green)
2. Midland Avenue from Devereux Road to Eighth Street (red)
3. The downtown detour squareabout route (purple)
Crews are scheduled to begin paving the US Hwy 6 corridor in May. Stay tuned for an updated schedule and traffic impacts associated with this work.
