Glenwood Springs Motorists should plan for delays on I-70 westbound in the Glenwood Springs area due to a lane closure for fire activities.
Westbound traffic is moving slowly due to a lane closure in South Canyon, west of Glenwood Springs, which is necessary for assisting firefighting operations on the 111 Fire. It is likely the delays will continue well into the evening, due to heavy commuter traffic.
Motorists heading to Delta/Montrose/CO 550 and further south, might consider CO 133 as a possible option to avoid long delays.
