Busy I-70 tunnel in Colorado to close for summer

| 4/13/2007

There’s going to be a major bottleneck on Interstate 70 in Colorado this summer.

According to the Denver Post, the Glenwood Canyon Tunnel is going to be reduced from four lanes to two lanes once work begins to repair a crack that’s developed in the ceiling of the eastbound side.

About 17,000 trucks and cars presently use the tunnel each day, according to the Post.

The eastbound side is expected to be closed for the entire summer, and there’s really no good detour in the area, the Post reported.
