GARFIELD COUNTY —Just a few days shy of two months after the initial rockfall incident that closed Glenwood Canyon, the project team has completed the necessary repairs to get I-70 open to four lanes of travel. Repairs to the Glenwood Canyon bike path have also been completed although the path is still closed from Shoshone to Hanging Lake rest area until later this week.

 

The emergency project was completed 23-days ahead of the original schedule.
