GW CANYON PROGRESS

Glenwood Springs—Work crews have made sufficient enough progress repairing rock fall damage on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon that one lane is now open in each direction.  C-DOT officials say there may be instances where they have to return to the head-to-head configuration with a pace car but the goal is to keep both directions going. A 35 mile per hour speed limit is in effect through the work zone.  Complete repairs aren’t expected for another month.

ONE SPAN LEFT OF GW PED BRIDGE

Glenwood Springs—The second and most challenging span of the Glenwood Springs pedestrian bridge was successfully removed last night and carefully placed in the so-called ‘boneyard’ on Coach Miller Drive.  I-70 had to be closed in Glenwood Springs in both directions during the process.  The third and final span will be removed tonight from 8pm until 6am Friday.  Detours aren’t expected to be as extensive.

SOMETHING STINKS IN ASPEN

ASPEN (AP) – Aspen officials are looking to rid the city of an unpleasant stench downtown. Sewage-like odors in two areas of downtown during the past month have caused health problems for employees at two businesses. The sanitation district says the smell is likely a result of decaying organic matter in the storm sewers made worse by warm February temperatures.
