I-70 traffic back to normal after CDOT finishes rockfall work, to resume Tuesday
The Colorado Department of Transportation is done closing Interstate 70 for the rockfall mitigation work it is doing in Down Junction for today. CDOT says work will resume Tuesday but there will only be one-lane closures on both directions of the highway. Please plan accordingly and expect delays.
CDOT crews resumed work around 6 a.m. Monday morning and stopped traffic in 30-minute intervals, snarling traffic in both direction for miles.
Developers of an addiction treatment center at the former Lodge at Cordillera site say lawsuits brought forth by Cordillera residents and the metro district violated federal law, and the parties are headed to federal court.
