Eastbound I-70 will be closed in Glenwood Canyon overnight Tuesday

Eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 will be closed overnight Tuesday in Glenwood Canyon as crews repair the damaged highway.

The overnight closure — from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday — at exit 116 (Glenwood Springs) is necessary to pave a temporary lane in the eastbound median so construction can continue on the retaining wall, the Colorado Department of Transportation said Monday in a news release.

The interstate in Glenwood Canyon has taken a beating this summer from repeated mudslides that have led to numerous closures. The slides are the result of the Grizzly Creek fire last summer, which torched more than 32,000 acres.
