I-70 Delays Expected Near Idaho Springs Monday

August 31, 2015

Drivers heading through Interstate 70's mountain corridor into Idaho Springs on Monday night can expect delays as construction reduces the highway to one lane in each direction.

Westbound I-70 drivers will shift into the eastbound lanes and travel up a ramp to cross over the highway on Colorado Boulevard and re-enter westbound I-70.

Eastbound I-70 drivers will turn onto the new off-ramp at Colorado Boulevard and go down another ramp to re-enter the highway.

All lanes are expected to reopen by 7 a.m. Tuesday, but the Colorado Department of Transportation says the eastbound lane closure might be extended.

The detours are due to construction crews setting the girders for a new bridge under construction.
