Repair & Clean-Up

By  | 

It's a road block no more but it leaves a hefty price tag.

The section of Interstate 70, near Glenwood Springs, is partially cleared. The road had been blocked off because of a massive rockslide Thursday morning.

C-Dot crews, working 15-hour shifts, have cleared some of the rubble.

Experts say the road doesn't have any signs of long term structural damage but initial costs of clean-up and repairs could be about $1 million.

An average 20 thousand vehicles pass through the stretch of I-70 daily. But because of the holiday, an extra 5000 vehicles may have had to take a detour daily.
