CDOT road projects cause delays on Interstate 70, Colorado Highway 9

UPDATE at 3:08 p.m.: The right lane of Interstate 70 has reopened west of the Eisenhower Tunnel, according to Matt Inzeo, CDOT’s director of communications.

Inzeo said CDOT crews were doing maintenance on lights in the tunnel, and the work has been completed.

Crews also have been paving on eastbound I-70 near Silverthorne since 9:30 a.m. and are expected to finish by 3:30 p.m. Inzeo noted that crews will be back out on I-70 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday for paving operations between mileposts 208 and 210 east of Silverthorne. There will be single lane closures, though the project isn’t expected to create significant traffic delays.

Original story

FRISCO — Motorists should expect delays on segments of Interstate 70 as the Colorado Department of Transportation does road work in the area. 

According to CDOT, the right lane is closed for about a mile on westbound I-70 east of Silverthorne from mile marker 205.5 to 204.5. The right lane is also closed on eastbound I-70 on the west side of the Eisenhower Tunnel for tunnel maintenance. 

Additionally, there is ongoing roadwork on Colorado Highway 6 at Loveland Pass, where road work has created a single-lane of alternating traffic. Drivers should expect delays on Highway 9 as CDOT works to paint areas of the highway near Hoosier Pass.
