GARFIELD COUNTY, Colo – A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the Grizzly Creek burn scar in Glenwood Canyon.
There are safety closures in place for rest areas in Glenwood Canyon and the recreation path. Motorists planning to travel through Glenwood Canyon should monitor the weather closely.
During a Flash Flood Watch, CDOT has crews and equipment on standby in preparation for a closure of #I70. If there is a Flash Flood Warning for the Grizzly Creek burn scar, CDOT will close I-70 in Glenwood Canyon. Updates will be posted to cotrip.org and CDOT’s Twitter page.
Mudslides on Saturday and Sunday resulted in hours long closures of the interstate last weekend.
