All set to go.

All four lanes of I-70 going through Glenwood Canyon are open more than a week ahead of schedule.

Traffic was rerouted around the canyon for three days until crews opened a portion of the road.

Crews had to repair eight damaged sections of a bridge deck had to be before completely reopening the highway.
