CLEAR CREEK COUNTY - Drivers who take the I-70 mountain corridor near Georgetown and Silver Plume should buckle up for some lengthy delays this week.
Colorado Department of Transportation will perform rockfall mitigation on Georgetown Hill starting on Tuesday at 8 a.m.
CDOT says those traveling the corridor through Clear Creek County should plan on delays of up to two hours.
On Tuesday, Nov. 1 through Thursday, Nov. 3, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. motorists can expect 20 minute traffic holds in both directions of I-70 between mile posts 226 and 228 as a helicopter is used to hang new rockfall panels on Georgetown Hill.
These panels will help protect motorists from potential future rockfall situations.
On Tuesday, Nov. 8, and Wednesday, Nov. 9, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. motorists can expect 20 minute traffic holds in both directions of I-70 between mile posts 226 and 228 for rock scaling work. Crews will remove rock debris that has accumulated under the rockfall netting.
