Mudslides, flash-flood threat once again close to I-70 through Glenwood Canyon

Interstate 70 is once again closed due to mudslides and flash-flood concerns through Glenwood Canyon.

The Colorado Department of Transportation announced the closure before 9 p.m. Tuesday and will remain closed Wednesday morning.

According to the CDOT, the road is closed at exit 87 (West Rifle), exit 109 (Canyon Creek), exit 116 (Glenwood Springs) and exit 133 (Dotsrow).

The CDOT said Wednesday morning that there was no estimated time to reopen the interstate.

The engineering marvel that is this part of the interstate has been closed several times this summer following hurricane or flash-flood threats. Mudslides have descended along the canyon from burn marks caused by the Grizzly Creek fire, which scorched 32,000 acres in the canyon in 2020.
