The interstate was closed from Colorado Boulevard and Interstate 270 to place beams for a new flyover. I-70 reopened early Monday morning.


CDOT says crews were able to complete a lot of work over the weekend during the closure. The Central 70 Project is 19 percent complete but there’s still a long way to go.

Construction is expected to wrap up in 2022.
