The same nighttime schedule will also apply to the same area and hours beginning the nights of Monday, April 11, through Thursday morning, April 14.
In addition, eastbound I-70 will be restricted to two lanes from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, April 6 and 7, in the same area between Van Brunt and Woodland. Workers are rehabilitating the decks of five bridges on westbound I-70. Similar restrictions are expected to continue into the summer as repairs progress from one lane to the next adjacent lane.
