DENVER (AP) Transportation officials will begin rerouting traffic on Interstate 70 on Monday to allow crews to widen the westbound bore of the Twin Tunnels in Idaho Springs.

The Denver Post reports traffic will be rerouted from the west into the eastbound bore before blasting begins.

Benjamin Acimovic, a project manager with the Colorado Department of Transportation, says "we realize how important it is to keep traffic moving during the spring-break ski season, so we will only close lanes during off-peak travel times and we will monitor traffic flow so we can make adjustments as needed."

The expansion is part of a $55 million project to ease congestion on the heavily traveled interstate, which links Denver with some of the state's largest ski areas.
