Interstate 70 work to slow traffic

Summit Daily Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. ” Work near the Twin Tunnels just east of Idaho Springs will impact Interstate 70 traffic this week, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

On Tuesday, the left lane of eastbound I-70 will be closed, beginning just east of Idaho Springs and continuing to the tunnel, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for retaining wall work. Drivers should anticipate slowing through the area.

On Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., safety considerations will require periodic traffic stops of up to 20 minutes on eastbound I-70 for rock-scaling operations above the eastbound tunnel.

CDOT will monitor traffic volumes and modify the traffic stops accordingly.
