    ROAD ALERT:Rifle -Glenwood SpringsEast : I-70 east of Glenwood Springs in the Glenwood Canyon corridor, Garfield and Eagle County
    Road Work
    MM116
    MM132
    I-70 Eastbound / Westbound I-70 east of Glenwood Springs in the Glenwood Canyon corridor, Garfield and Eagle County (Milemarker 116-132) (through March 2020)
    The project will consist of: • installing three weather stations for live monitoring and reporting of weather conditions; • installing 73 standard static signs; • installing 17 new dual, variable speed limit signs; • replacing five single variable speed limit signs; • removing 38 existing static signs; • installing nine closed-circuit cameras for live monitoring and viewing of roadway conditions; • adding other surface and subsurface conduit, and related improvements to guide the display of the variable speed limits. This section of I-70 experiences a range of weather conditions throughout the year, causing unsafe conditions for drivers who don't take proper precautions. The new signs will: • give drivers advance warning and generate a safer traffic flow to decrease accidents in the canyon. • increase the standard speed limit during good conditions to 60 mph compared to 50 mph in most areas of the canyon. • lower the speed limit to assist with incident management, conditions created by inclement weather, and maintenance and construction.
