Construction around the Floyd Hill section of I-70 Credit: Colorado Department of Transportation

FLOYD HILL, Colorado – It feels like construction along I-70 in Colorado will never end. Lane closures, lane shifts, slow-speed sections, etc. They just won’t come to an end. And, as long as the Floyd Hill Project continues (it’s expected not to end until 2028), that will remain true.
