Critical Guardrail Work Prompts Lane Closures on I-70

The left lanes of westbound I-70 between Prospect and westbound I-670/I-70 split are closed to address critical guardrail and slope repair operations which would not provide for the safe movement of traffic through the area.  Crews are working to install erosion control and new guardrail in the area. In addition, the 13th Street Ramp from westbound I-670 is closed. All lanes will reopen by 4 a.m. Monday, Nov. 21. All work is weather dependent.

Currently, the guardrail is removed, requiring the lane closures to stay in place to ensure motorist safety, until crews can have all safety items put back in place. All lanes will reopen before rush hour on Monday, Nov. 21.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention as they drive past work zones. Not all work zones look alike. We remind motorists that work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
