Resurfacing Project to Begin in Glenwood Canyon

LOCAL RAFTING COMPANIES ARE GOING TO BE INCONVENIENCED AT THE START OF THE SEASON BECAUSE OF A MAJOR REPAVING PROJECT IN GLENWOOD CANYON. A FOUR-MILE STRETCH OF I-70 FROM THE HANGING LAKE TUNNEL TO THE GRIZZLY CREEK REST AREA IS GOING TO BE REPAVED WITH CONCRETE. THE THREE MILLION DOLLAR PROJECT BREAKS GROUND APRIL 16TH. C-DOT’S NANCY SHANKS SAYS CREWS WILL WORK WITH RAFTING COMPANIES TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE ACCESS TO KEY PUT-IN POINTS ALONG THE COLORADO. AN OPEN HOUSE IS BEING HELD TOMORROW AFTERNOON AT THE GLENWOOD SPRINGS COMMUNITY CENTER FROM 4 TO 6.

TRAFFIC WILL ALSO BE IMPACTED DURING THE PROJECT AS CREWS TEAR UP THE OLD ASPHALT TO MAKE WAY FOR THE MORE DURABLE CONCRETE SURFACE. THE PROJECT WON’T BE COMPLETED UNTIL THE END OF JUNE.
