Default I-70 closed Moab trip may take a detour

Just read I-70 is closed and will be for some time in the Glenwood Canyon area. I remember last time this happened and it was a pain to get through, one lane each way.

read this Semi-Sized Boulders Close I-70

it will add 2 hours to your trip, but you can jaunt south on 24 to 82 through snowmass.. very scenic drive...

chances are this will be reopened inside of 2 weeks tho, so it may be a moot point

I guess maybe 285 to 50 to 550 up to Grand Junction.

Worst case, could always go over McClure and cut through Gateway to get to Moab, would add some time onto the drive though....

I too was thinking this route.

Might be a crazy question: Is Independence pass open?

I just want to Google maps and any way I try it, a different route adds 3-4 hours to our trip. I-25 to the spring to 50 is 10 hours. 285 to 50 equals 9.5 hours and any other way from I-70 equals 10 hours too. Hope they fix one of the lanes by Thursday. Last time they opened the westbound lanes to two way traffic and it was slow but not 10 hours slow.

Cross your fingers.
