OUCH! I-70 Closed Until October, Son Gets Detoured.....

 He was going to come on the Southern Route, taking I-40 through AZ and NM. Well....he changed his mind, and was planning on taking I-70 through CO to get here.

As the headline says, I-70 is closed due to mudslides and other weather-related issues. Google Maps is telling him to take the 13 North out of Rifle up to the 40, and then come across and down to Denver, and then up to here on the I-25.


At least he can stop at Shooters for lunch....

  2. If it is not too late, advise him to head from Grand Junction to Montrose on US 50 and stay on US 50 to I-25. It is out of his way but US 40 is one massive traffic jam.

    2. Agreed, that would be a much better route since so much diverted traffic will be on Hwy 40.
