As Colorado digs out from last weekend’s storm, the Colorado Department of Transportation is ramping up some construction projects, with many of them along Interstate 70.
Interstate 70 traffic ground to a halt at times on Thursday as Colorado Department of Transportation crews blasted away rock inside the Twin Tunnels near Idaho Springs.
From work at the Twin Tunnels to apartment buildings going up all over the Denver metro area, construction is booming in Colorado, and demand for construction workers could be out-stripping the supply.
Construction at the Twin Tunnels to widen the westbound tunnel and make it safer for drivers will last until December.
Travelers heading to the mountains for spring skiing and boarding should be prepared for more construction on westbound Interstate 70 at the Twin Tunnels.
The constant shifts in temperatures Colorado has been experiencing in recent weeks also means a shift in rock walls along places like Interstate 70.
The Twin Tunnels on Interstate-70 near Idaho Springs could be getting a new name. Lawmakers want to name them the “Veterans Memorial Tunnels.”
Officials with the Colorado Department of Transportation are warning travelers that they should be prepared for more construction on Interstate 70 at the Twin Tunnels starting this week.
Starting as early as Monday there will be some lane closures on Interstate 70 for work on the westbound Twin Tunnels project.
Almost every weekend traffic in the mountains is a challenge, and this holiday weekend is no exception. So the Colorado Department of Transportation has been coming up with some new ways to get drivers to change their travel habits.
