The closure of I-70 through Glenwood Canyon means disruptions in trucking and processing for pet food companies, among others.

You don't give much thought to a road until it's closed. It may be weeks before I-70 through Glenwood Canyon is open again. The impacts on everyday life are almost mind-boggling-- on commuters, tourists, and truckers.
