Highway crews will shut down eastbound I-70 over Manchester Trafficway starting at 8 tonight for bridge repairs. The highway will be closed all weekend. It reopens at 5:30 Monday morning. Vehicles will be detoured to U.S. 40 and south on Manchester Trafficway where they can pick up I-70 again.

Also closing will be the ramp from U.S. 40 to eastbound I-70, the ramp from Van Brunt Boulevard to eastbound I-70 and the ramp from westbound I-70 to Manchester Trafficway.

The new gets even worse. Starting Monday, eastbound I-70 will be down two lanes for about 2 1/2 months. The ramp from U.S. 50 to eastbound 70 will remain closed as well.
