Grand Junction, Colo. – Heavy traffic is expected along the I-70 corridor this Saturday and Sunday. Motorists traveling eastbound should allow for extra time.

Due to Sunday events along the Front Range, peak travel times are expected earlier in the day and all motorists should expect heavy delays.

Travelers are also encouraged to utilize facilities in Silverthorne prior to reaching the Eisenhower Tunnel. Heavy traffic delays are expected due to traffic counts and winter weather.

Motorists traveling eastbound on I-70 through the Eisenhower tunnel this weekend are encouraged to visit the link below or call 511 for updates on current road and traffic conditions.
