CDOT to shut canyon Wednesday for 6 several hours

Interstate 70 eastbound through Glenwood Canyon will be shut on Wednesday for an estimated 6 several hours, from 10 a.m. via 4 p.m., to allow for the secure removing of a crashed professional motor vehicle.

“The duration of the closure could change depending on climate and other variables, so CDOT asks that eastbound motorists approach alternate routes for the day,” a Colorado Section of Transportation news release states.
