GW CANYON PILOT CAR A LITTLE SMOOTHER THIS MORNING
Glenwood Springs—The pilot car escort through Glenwood Canyon went a little smoother this morning during the work hour rush. C-DOT is trying to work out the glitches to minimize the delays with the one lane configuration between 4pm and 9am. According to C-DOT, part of the two mile long traffic backup at the main Glenwood exit, (mm116), was due to motorists falling behind and losing sight of the pilot car as it leads people along the makeshift route to either Dotsero or No Name. Officials say it also helps if people get an earlier start if they plan to drive through the canyon. Complete repairs to the heavily damaged interstate is going to require millions of dollars and several weeks to finish.
