Amtrak Service To Resume In Western Colorado, Utah

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Amtrak service will resume in western Colorado and Utah this weekend now that tracks damaged by last month’s flooding have been repaired.

Amtrak said Thursday that the California Zephyr train, which runs between Chicago to the San Francisco Bay area, will start making stops in cities including Glenwood Springs and Grand Junction in Colorado and Green River and Provo in Utah on Saturday.

Passenger trains haven’t been able to travel through those communities and others since Sept. 11 because of heavy rain and flooding in the Moffat Tunnel west of Denver.

The Zephyr has continued to run during that time using a detour through Wyoming.
