Colorado: Interstate 70
Interstate 70 (I-70) is a major Interstate Highway in the United States that runs from I-15 near Cove Fort, Utah to I-695 near Baltimore, Maryland.
The video shows the section of Interstate 70 between Denver to Grand Junction, both of Colorado.
The section is of mountainous terrain, with the the Colorado River on the side, which provides its path up the western slope of the Rocky Mountains.
The 15-mile (24 km) Glenwood Canyon inside of the section was completed in 1992 and was an engineering marvel due to the extremely difficult terrain and narrow space in the canyon, which requires corners that are sharper than normal Interstate standards.
Construction was delayed for many years due to environmental concerns. The difficulties in building the road in the canyon were compounded by the fact that the Denver & Rio Grande Western railroad occupied the south bank and many temporary construction projects took place to keep US 6 open, at the time the only east–west road in the area.
The speed limit in this section is 50 mph (80 km/h) due to the limited sight distance and sharp corners.
The Eisenhower–Johnson Memorial Tunnel, the highest vehicular tunnel in North America and the longest tunnel built under the Interstate program, passes through the Continental Divide.
