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.
