Timetable for Reopening I-70 in Glenwood Canyon is Unknown

Interstate 70 will not open today.  Shailen Bhatt with the Colorado Department of Transportation says with rocks still falling in Glenwood Canyon, it is not safe to open the road.  While crews are working diligently to open the road again, they are now declining to even guess when the road might open.

Bhatt says crews are just as confident of a reopening Sunday as they were of a reopening today, but, he said, they are also aware that there are many circumstances that would prevent a Sunday opening. 

Bhatt says there is also a good possibility that the road will not reopen until next week sometime.
