Starting Monday, Aug. 14 and continuing for about 95 days, Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will close the Grand Avenue Bridge in Glenwood Springs—the main connection for motorists traveling via Interstate 70 to Snowmass. If you are planning on traveling through Glenwood Springs to Snowmass, it is highly recommended that you take exit #195 on I-70 (Copper Mountain) towards Leadville instead. If you are in doubt, it is best to use navigation systems such as Google Maps. Be sure to check HERE for the most up to date information.
