The Colorado Department of Transportation reports that helicopter work today in Glenwood Canyon has wrapped up and drivers should not be delayed traveling Interstate 70.

Closures of 30 minutes were needed for helicopters to deliver materials to the site of a major rockslide that closed the road for nearly a week in February.

Crews are working through the summer to shore up the slope just west of the Hanging Lake Tunnel.
