View Full Version : Cdot suggested detour

03-08-2010, 02:33 PM
From Cdot;

Around midnight, we had a major rock slide in Glenwood Canyon at mile marker 125, just west of the Hanging Lake Tunnel (see photos attached). Currently, eastbound and westbound I-70 is closed between approximately Dotsero and Glenwood Springs. Several detour routes are in place:
From westbound I-70: exit at US 40/Empire to State Highway 13 and back to I-70; exit in Silverthorne and take State Highway 9 to US 40 and State Highway 13; exit at Wolcott/State Highway 131 to US 40 and State Highway 13.
From eastbound I-70: exit at Rifle/State Highway 13 to US 40 and back to I-70.
CDOT crews are on site assessing the slide area and damage to the roadway. Stacey Stegman is on site, but out of cell phone range; however we will provide an update by 10 a.m.
