One lane of I-70 closed for maintenance on Vail Pass; U.S. 24 hit with sinkhole near Red Cliff
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will perform minor highway maintenance work on eastbound Interstate 70 at Vail Pass from mile marker (MM) 181 to MM 184 Tuesday, July 10, through Thursday, July 12.
CDOT crews will close the right lane of eastbound I-70 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. each day. The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph. Minor delays should be expected through the area and drivers are urged to plan for extra travel time.

CDOT on Monday reopened one lane of U.S. 24 north of Leadville and south of Red Cliff. The highway was closed this afternoon so CDOT crews could determine if the roadway was safe for use after heavy rains created a sinkhole.
One lane of U.S. 24 will remain closed indefinitely as crews observe the activity surrounding the sinkhole to assess if the damage will spread during weather changes or if it is contained.
All traffic will alternate through the closure zone for the next couple of days until the extent of necessary repairs is determined.
