GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - Colorado Department of Transportation is looking into improvements for Cottonwood Pass.
Cottonwood Pass runs through a dirt road between Gypsum and Glenwood. The pass is used as a means to get around emergency road closures on I-70 through Glenwood Canyon.
C-DOT has scheduled two open house presentations for next week to unveil concept designs for improvements on the pass.
C-DOT has supported Eagle and Garfield Counties with initial concepts for safety improvements.
Currently Cottonwood Pass has no guardrail protections and it can become impassable with heavy rain and mud.
