For those who make the commute on I-70 from skiing at Keystone Resort or other Summit County destinations will be interested to know that a $60 million dollar project to widen the eastbound Twin Tunnels near Idaho Springs is a go. Members of the Colorado Transportation Commission approved the plan on Thursday.
This could be good news for weekend warriors traveling back towards Denver after a weekend on the slopes at Keystone. The Sunday afternoon drive during peak season can be a slow one, and it is expected that this project will serve to improve the flow of traffic.
