I-70 Closes For Construction

Construction of a new overpass at Interstate 70 and 24 Road in Grand Junction is reaching its peak and motorists all over the Grand Valley can expect to feel the impact during the beginning of this week.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is closing I-70 in both directions from the Clifton interchange to the 22 Road interchange Monday and Tuesday night.
The closure will be in effect both nights from 7 pm to 5 am. Also 24 road will be closed to all traffic from Canyon View Park to the entrance of Fellowship Church.
The road closures are needed in order for CDOT to put in place concrete girders for the bridge.
In order to get around the closure motorists are advised to use the I-70 business loop and 6&50 corridors as well as Patterson Road as alternate routes.
