Aspen, CO Colorado

CLEAR CREEK ” The Colorado Department of Transportation will be stopping traffic on Interstate 70 at Georgetown Hill throughout the day on Monday for rock scaling.

Beginning at 10:30 a.m. and continuing until about 5 p.m., traffic on eastbound and westbound I-70 will be stopped for 20 minutes, twice an hour. Westbound traffic will be stopped just east of the Georgetown interchange and eastbound traffic will be stopped at Silver Plume.

Following Monday’s work, right lane closures of westbound I-70 will continue from 10:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., through Thursday, Jan. 25. Vehicles wider than 12 feet will not be allowed to travel through this area when the lane is closed.

If adverse weather cancels Monday’s work, operations will be rescheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 23.

The project is scheduled for completion by the end of March 2007.
