Debeque Canyon rock mitigation, traffic closures

Orange Barrel Alerts

MESA COUNTY– Rock mitigation will be taking place Monday morning in Debeque Canyon.

Starting at 8:30 a.m. and continuing throughout the day until 4 p.m., there will be 20 to 30-minute closures on both east and westbound lanes.

Eastbound traffic will be stopped at the Kokopelli off-ramp, and westbound traffic will be stopped at the Cameo truck stop.

There is a chance CDOT crews will not be able to complete the work and will continue on Tuesday.

This work will address loose rocks identified on the ridgeline above I-70 in hopes to prevent disaster and keep motorists safe.

We will provide updates as needed.
