I-70 eastbound daytime closure planned for Wednesday, July 13 in Glenwood Canyon


Closure needed to allow crews to safely remove crashed commercial motor vehicle

STATEWIDE — A closure is planned for eastbound I-70 next Wednesday, July 13 in Glenwood Canyon. The closure will start at 10 a.m. and will last approximately six hours. The length of the closure could change depending on weather and other variables, so CDOT asks that eastbound motorists plan alternate routes for the day. Westbound I-70 will remain open. The eastbound closure is planned to start mid morning to limit impacts on commuter traffic through the canyon. 

Removing the commercial motor vehicle will not affect CDOT’s ability to continue following the safety protocol for Flash Flood Watches and Warnings for I-70 in Glenwood Canyon.


Motorists should use or CDOT’s free COtrip Planner mobile app to plan an alternate route. The northern alternate route on US Highway 40 is recommended for most motorists. The northern alternate route will require approximately 2.5 hours additional travel time to reach your destination, compared to traveling on I-70 through Glenwood Canyon. Eastbound motorists should anticipate construction at exit 205 in Silverthorne when returning to I-70 from Colorado Highway 9. During the closure, motorists will continue to have access to Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Valley.


By traveling on the recommended alternate route, motorists can avoid major delays caused by rough roads and other hazards. CDOT asks motorists to not use US 50 as an alternate route due to heavy construction and traffic impacts between Montrose and Gunnison.

Join Us as CMCA hosts the TSA Transportation Security Template and Assessment Review Toolkit (T-START) Workshop on August 17th
Workshop Overview 
The purpose of this workshop is to strengthen prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery capabilities within the Highway Motor Carrier (HMC) industry, school bus, motorcoach and trucking communities by helping companies to develop comprehensive and tailored security plans using a TSA-provided Security Plan template.
The workshop incorporates an industry-specific threat briefing and hands-on instructions on how to use and modify the Security Plan template.
Security Plan Development 
TSA designed the Security Plan template to help surface transportation companies and operators develop effective security plans and activities based on industry best practices and requirements.

The template combines emergency preparedness components and activities into a single document, providing companies and operators a foundation to develop tailored, operator-specific security and emergency procedures.
Please note: This workshop requires each participant to have access to a laptop computer with Windows OS and Microsoft Word 2016 (or newer).  

Space is filling up fast for this event! Please email to RSVP so that you can attend.

NEVI Program Survey

As a part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) signed into law in 2021, the $5 billion National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program will provide funding to individual states to develop electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging infrastructure and establish an interconnected network across the United States. Colorado expects to receive approximately $57 million from this program over the next five years to install EV fast charging infrastructure along federally-designated alternative fuel corridors in the state.

While the focus of the NEVI program is on highway-oriented DC fast-charging tied to federally-designated interstates and highways, the program places particular emphasis on projects that support rural charging, disproportionately impacted community charging, and infrastructure that supports commercial freight and goods movement. Other EV charging needs not specifically eligible under the NEVI program will still be addressed in Colorado via existing and new grant programs administered by the Colorado Energy Office and Community Access Enterprise.

To be eligible to receive federal NEVI funds, Colorado must submit a Statewide EV Infrastructure Plan by August 1, 2022 for approval by the federal Joint Office of Energy and Transportation. Public engagement with a broad array of stakeholders is key to developing a robust and equitable plan for Colorado, so your input is critical.

How To Get Involved 

If you would like to participate in this effort, please take a moment to fill out this brief survey. The input gathered will be used to inform the priorities for EV fast-charging stations to be funded across Colorado. Once a draft NEVI Plan is developed and shared with the public, CDOT will host a live online public meeting in July 2022 to discuss key elements of the plan. This will be an opportunity for stakeholders to ask questions and provide additional input. 

In the meantime, if you represent an organization or community that is interested in requesting a presentation on this topic, please contact us  to schedule a meeting. 

Lastly, please visit our NEVI webpage to stay informed of future developments and additional stakeholder input opportunities. You can also subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates. 

Please let us know if you have any questions and thank you for taking the time to participate in this important statewide conversation!
