Oct. 13, 2022, 9:10 a.m. – Motorists should plan for delays and occasional traffic holds on Interstate 70 in Glenwood Canyon starting at 9 a.m. today. The traffic impacts are anticipated to continue throughout the day and into the early evening. The traffic impacts are due to work to safely remove a crashed tractor trailer.
The crashed commercial motor vehicle is in the median near Mile Point 119 (No Name), east of Glenwood Springs. I-70 will be open with one lane in each direction for eastbound and westbound traffic. Crews will work as quickly and safely as possible to remove the cargo from the CMV trailer before removing the entire vehicle. Motorists should anticipate occasional traffic holds as crews place or remove heavy equipment.
The crash took place yesterday, Wednesday, Oct. 12. Motorists should use COtrip.org or CDOT’s free COtrip Planner mobile app to view travel impacts and, if necessary, plan an alternate route.
