I-70 closure in Colorado

This Wednesday (7-28-16) and Thursday (7-29-16) I-70 through Glenwood Canyon will be closed from 9 am to 3:30 pm to install rock fencing. You will have to get off the highway at Glenwood Springs or Dotsero. They will not let people wait on the highway, so anyone with a trailer may be somewhat perplexed what to do. And the Main St. bridge over I-70 in Glenwood is being rebuilt or replaced and that is also a traffic nightmare.

Don't try to get around this by taking Colo. 82 over Independence Pass (between Aspen and Twin Lakes near Leadville). There's a 30' limit on that highway.

Alternate routes are much, much longer if you wait until you get close to the closure. Some of them are hard for towing. US 50 is a better alternate as is US 40, or just camp somewhere and wait it out.

I have a sister who lives in Grand Junction. Where is a good place to camp with our 28 ft AS? Would like electric 30-50amp service. Shady.

The I-70 closure will come again this month. The helicopter didn't work out because of winds and the first they found that out and cancelled the closure for the 2nd day. Check Colorado Dept. of Transportation website for closures coming up.

Gina, try RV Park Reviews website.
