GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- Avoiding construction in the valley may be challenging this week as a popular intersection is set to close. As a part of the I-70 B Reconstruction Project the South side of the Rimrock Ave intersection will be closing beginning tonight at 9:00 p.m. through the morning of Saturday August 24th.

The intersection is being closed for paving work. Officials say the week long closure is the best way to complete the project the fastest. The alternative would be to hand pour the intersection in sections and constantly reroute traffic for weeks.
