Independence Pass

PITKIN COUNTY, Colo. — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will conduct lane closures on Independence Pass (CO 82) on Wednesday and Thursday for rockfall mitigation work.

A full closure of the pass had been planned on Wednesday, Sept. 30 and Thursday, Oct. 1, but CDOT later said that the full closure is not necessary.

The lane closures will allow for hydromulching, a water and wood based mulch that helps stabilize the slopes, according to CDOT.

Road work along CO 82 began in late September and is expected to last through mid-October.
