Eastbound Interstate 70 will be reduced to one lane at the Route 65 interchange beginning March 29 through May 1 for pavement removal and replacement.

During this project, the ramp from eastbound I-70 to northbound Route 65 and the ramp from southbound Route 65 to eastbound I-70 will both be closed. All other ramps at the I-70 and Route 65 interchange will remain open.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
