KUSA- After months of work, the improved eastbound lanes of the Twin Tunnels on Interstate 70 near Idaho Springs will open next week.
Governor John Hickenlooper and the Colorado Department of Transportation Executive Director Don Hunt will gather on Saturday to celebrate.
The project widened the eastbound bore to accommodate an additional lane and is part of the first improvements to the eastbound I-70 mountain corridor.
The tunnel is expected to officially open to all traffic during the week of Dec. 9, weather permitting.
