The stops take place between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Westbound traffic will be stopped just beyond the Georgetown exit. Drivers should expect one or two stops each hour, depending on traffic volumes.Crews will be setting attenuator system posts this week. The rockfall barrier fencing that will be installed next week is the largest and strongest ever placed by CDOT.This project is weather dependent.
