Glenwood Canyon has been reopened by Colorado Department of Transportation on an extremely limited basis. The current plan implemented by CDOT is to open one lane of traffic from 4 PM to 9 AM, with a pilot car guiding cars in one direction at a time.
Per CDOT, I-70 is likely to remain closed at least until Saturday, 2/20, as inclement weather has created delays in crews’ progress bringing additional rocks down onto the highway and restoring safety. Colorado Mountain Express continues to monitor the situation with CDOT and will resume service between DIA and Aspen/Snowmass when the road has been deemed safe for travel.
During the Canyon closure period, CME will be taking requests from Aspen/Snowmass to/from Grand Junction airport on both our Charter and Premier services. We are accommodating a few reservations to Grand Junction and are planning to be ready for Thursday afternoon shuttles, with anticipation of Glenwood Canyon being reopened by CDOT.

Colorado Department of Transportation annouced that the I-70 Mountain Express Lane will open on the morning of Saturday, December 12th. Look for overhead electronic signs to display toll rates…but this is just a test! Tomorrow the tolls will be waived until further notice so drivers can become familiar with the lane.
