TRAVEL ALERT: A single lane closure on westbound I-70 at the bottom of Floyd Hill (just past US 6 on the mountain corridor) has traffic backed up four miles and the delays are expected to reach 2+ hours. There is a hole through the bridge deck and, due to safety concerns, motorists will not be allowed to drive over it until repairs are made. We will keep you updated once we determine what repairs will need to be done that way we can give an estimate of reopening. US 6 and US 40 can be used as alternate routes to avoid delays in that area.

We're looking into 285 as being a possible alternate, but due to wind concerns in some areas, we want to make sure the Fairplay area is safe for motorists to travel through. We know that this is inconvenient, but safety is our #1 priority.
