Crews are making improvements to the Exit 114 eastbound off-ramp. These improvements include wider and longer lanes for better, safer access to the roundabouts and will ultimately relieve congestion back-ups on I-70.

The Exit 114 eastbound off-ramp will be in a one-lane configuration for several weeks. During peak morning hours (7:30 AM to 8:30 AM), anticipate delays at Exit 114. Commuters are advised to use Exit 116 or shift their schedules when possible.

Please observe the construction signage, and Go Slow for the Cone Zone. The speed limit in this area is 55 MPH. Be mindful of stopped vehicles approaching Exit 114, and do not use the shoulder as an additional lane.

I-70 Exit 114 (West Glenwood) westbound off-ramp CLOSURE
The I-70 Exit 114 westbound off-ramp is scheduled to be CLOSED at 8 PM on Friday, Sept. 16 to 6 AM on Monday, Sept. 19. Westbound motorists should use Exit 116 (Main Glenwood) for access to downtown Glenwood Springs and West Glenwood during this ramp closure.

Eighth Street Connection Update
Crews have begun working on Park Driveway behind the baseball diamond at the Elementary School. GSES parents should pick-up at the normal pick-up/drop-off spot in front of the school.
Next week, crews will begin work at the intersection of Eighth Street and Midland Avenue. Pedestrian access will change slightly, but be maintained during this time. Pedestrians should follow marked pedestrian detour signage during this time.

On the Grand Avenue Bridge
Expect periodic one-lane closures on the Grand Avenue Bridge from 9 AM to 3 PM, Monday through Friday. Crews will be working to back fill a wall on the north end of the new pedestrian bridge.
