Answerland: Dowd Junction construction?

What’s going on with the construction on I-70 at Dowd Junction?

Workers are installing a new, taller, 5-foot barrier on Interstate 70 at Dowd Canyon, said Peter Kozinski of the state transportation department. The new barrier is supposed to cut down on glare at night, which has been a leading cause of accidents in the canyon, he said. Work is supposed to finish up in late June or early July, he said.

Paving work will continue until late July, he said. Paving is continuing eastbound from Avon to Dowd Canyon. It will then go westbound from the canyon back to Edwards, he said.
