Bridge construction, detour snarl I-70 traffic in Glenwood Springs
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. -- Traffic on Interstate 70 was backed up for several miles on Monday morning on the first day of replacing a bridge in Glenwood Springs. The project to replace the nearly 60-year-old Grand Avenue bridge is expected to last for about 95 days. It's one of the largest infrastructure projects on the Western Slope in 25 years, the Colorado Department of Transportation said. The bridge is the min connection for drivers from Interstate 70 to Colorado Highway 82.
