Interstate 70 through Glenwood Canyon is fully open nearly two months after rockfall caused major damage.  

In mid-February, I-70 closed for nearly a week. Then it reopened to head-to-head traffic followed by single-lane openings in each direction.  

Tracy Trulove, with the Colorado Department of Transportation, says urgent repairs to the road are now completeall four lanes are accessible.

"Originally, when the emergency project was planned, we were talking about May 5 being our opening so this was great to have it open 23 days ahead of schedule," she says.

Trulove says CDOT is still in the design phase for further rockfall mitigation for the canyon. Those repairs could cause future closures.
