SILVERTHORNE, Colo. (CBS4)– The drive along Interstate 70 may take a little longer on Monday because crews are trying to fix the pothole problem. Colorado Department of Transportation crews are working to fill those holes.
CDOT crews were working on I-70 at the Silverthorne exit on Monday. The westbound lanes of I-70 were closed on the bridge crossing Highway 6. Traffic was detoured over Loveland Pass.
The potholes have been blamed for tire damage for weeks. Now, those potholes should be fixed soon.
This winter season has cost Chris Logan big time in the form of new tires thanks to potholes forming faster than crews can repair them.
“Not once but twice I’ve had to replace tires in the past year,” he said.
This work on the bridge over Silverthorne on I-70 is just one of the problem areas responsible for keeping tire repair shops extra busy this season.
“People do try to avoid them, but often there’s someone in the lane next to you and that becomes more unsafe then just barreling through,” Logan said.
