I-70 exits impacted by Grand Avenue bridge work this week

Staff Report

Motorists are advised that the ongoing Grand Avenue bridge construction will result in traffic impacts at Interstate 70 Exits 114 and 116 in Glenwood Springs this week.

The main Glenwood Exit 116 westbound off-ramp will be down to one lane in order to complete structural walls for the new bridge.

In addition, due to ongoing work on the Exit 114 north roundabout, westbound semi trucks are being directed to take Exit 116 for freight access to businesses along U.S. 6 in West Glenwood.

Other work this week involves a crane that is being erected on Seventh Street for the start of construction on the elevator tower that will serve the new pedestrian bridge. Businesses in the area have been advised that the work will likely be noisy at times.
