Glenwood Canyon Variable Speed Limits

I-70 Mountain Corridor, Colorado

CONSOR is assisting the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) Region 3 with the project management and construction management for the I-70 Glenwood Canyon Variable Speed Limits (VSL) project. The VSL system that CDOT crews are installing will increase the corridor speed limit from 50 to 60 miles per hour for most parts of the 14-mile canyon in good weather. Speed limits will also drop to as low as needed when the road conditions worsen or construction or emergency closures occur. CONSOR is responsible for construction observation, inspection, and support for CDOT on this project. CONSOR has been supporting the review and approval of construction traffic control, inspection of contractor work, submittal reviews, and the completion of CDOT required project construction forms.
