A massive boulder the size of a large vehicle dislodged on Monday, Jan. 28 from Glenwood Canyon, landing on Interstate 70. There were no reported injuries.
The rock came to rest in the left westbound lane of Interstate 70 at mile marker 122.9., creating a hole in the highway about two miles west of the Hanging Lake Tunnels.
Crews from Colorado Department of Transportation worked through the day breaking up the rock and hauling away pieces of it in order to clear the debris from the highway. Crews also patched the hole that was created as a result of the rockfall.
Traffic was allowed to pass by the site using the right-hand westbound lane, though both westbound lanes were closed intermittently so crews could haul the rock pieces from the site.
As of 5 p.m. on Monday, repairs to the interstate had been completed and the rock had been completely removed from the site.
