This summer, two mudslides have covered the highway in Glenwood Canyon in Colorado, and geology and engineering experts say the danger could persist. According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, closures on I-70 are to protect other travelers, not to prevent potential natural disasters. While this news may be frustrating for drivers, these preventative measures may prevent countless car accidents.
According to The Denver Post, “Dozens of basins ravaged by last summer’s Grizzly Creek fire drain down toward Interstate 70, and all it takes is a short burst of intense rain in the right spot — a downpour lasting as little as 15 minutes — to send a soupy mix of sludge and rocks flowing onto the highway.”
