GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Interstate 70 through Glenwood Canyon reopened about 3 p.m. Thursday after a rock slide closed the road late Sunday night. A rock fall closed the entire 17-mile section of I-70 through Glenwood Canyon for more than three days, causing traffic to detour roughly 200 miles north through Steamboat Springs.Traffic remains limited to one lane in each direction, with a 14-foot width restriction and 40 mph speed limit through the damaged section of canyon for the duration of repairs.

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Traffic resumed on Interstate 70 through Glenwood Canyon on Thursday afternoon for the first time in more than three days after a massive rockslide covered the highway and punched holes through the elevated road.The opening ended a trying situation for some area businesses, which were left with a massive detour through Steamboat Springs for supplies and customers. Even some commuters found themselves cut off from work.For Glenwood’s tourism industry, the reopening came just in time for spring breakers to make it to town to ski and soak in the Hot Springs Pool.
