Dangerous Glenwood Canyon Stretch Could Get Cell Service Upgrade

Listen Now

One of the most beautiful drives in Colorado is through Glenwood Canyon on 1-70. But it’s also one of the most dangerous -- think rockslides and tight turns. It’s not the kind of place you want to lose your cellphone signal. But coverage through the canyon is spotty at best. That may change soon. A company wants to set up cell towers along the route, something that will help not only motorists, but also emergency workers. Marci Krivonen of Aspen Public Radio, who's following the story, joins Ryan Warner.
