I-70 WB: Resurfacing projects causing 30 minute travel time from Vail to Dowd Junction
A wait of about 30 minutes beset motorists traveling on I-70 from exit 176 in Vail to exit 171 in Dowd Junction during the lunchtime rush on Tuesday.
A highway resurfacing project already had the highway down to one lane when significant rainfall prompted rockslides in the area on July 1.
Those rockslides were still being cleaned up on Tuesday, contributing to the gridlock.
