Eisenhower Tunnel to experience random delays this week

CLEAR CREEK COUNTY ” Traffic delays should be anticipated on westbound Interstate 70, just east of and through the Eisenhower Tunnel, as pipe installation operations take place throughout the week.

Currently, only one lane of traffic is open to traffic on westbound I-70 through the Eisenhower Tunnel. This operation remains in place 24 hours a day, until Friday at 10 a.m. Drivers should expect delays up to 30 minutes during daylight hours, with additional delays possible during the peak evening drive time ” 3-7 p.m.

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) apologizes for the traffic delays but the 24-hour lane closures are required to complete this work. CDOT scheduled this operation prior to Memorial Day to minimize impacts to I-70 before traffic increases substantially this summer.
