Rock work on I-70 in Georgetown will cause delays

GEORGETOWN — Drivers in Colorado’s High Country can expect delays this week on Interstate 70 in Georgetown.

Crews are installing fencing above the highway to prevent rocks from falling on the road.

Today, one lane will be closed on westbound I-70 at Georgetown Hill from 10:30 a.m. to sundown.

On Tuesday, traffic in both directions will be stopped up for up to 20 minutes at a time. The closures will start at 10:30 a.m. and continue through the late afternoon.

Delays are also expected westbound on Wednesday and in both directions on Thursday because of lane closures.

The risk of rocks falling on the road is higher in the spring when warm temperatures during the day and colder temperatures at night can loosen them.
