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.
