Xcel Energy is replacing and repairing power poles between the Shoshone Hydroelectric Plant and Glenwood Springs this summer.


There will be periodic lane closures on I-70 through Glenwood Canyon.

 River runners and hikers should expect holds on the Colorado River and the canyon recreation trail.


Work begins this week and is expected to finish in mid-October.


There’s a meeting Wednesday from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at the Hotel Colorado for the public to learn more.
