CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. — Beginning Wednesday, Loveland Pass will be closing on various days over the next two weeks so the Colorado Department of Transportation can perform maintenance work.
The closures will run from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. while the work is underway. The first closure is on July 6. The rest of the days for scheduled maintenance include:
- July 7
- July 12
- July 13
- July 14
- July 19
- July 20
CDOT maintenance crews will be removing rocks that have fallen from the slope and debris along the roadway during the closures. CDOT said closing Loveland Pass is necessary during the work for the safety of crews and drivers because of the pass’ tight configuration.
The closures are weather dependent and subject to change.
Hazmat trucks will be staged at the entry of the Eisenhower Johnson Memorial Tunnel and allowed through the tunnel at the top of each hour.
