Glenwood Canyon

Glenwood Canyon has been in the news lately due to a massive rockfall that closed I-70. (See Samantha’s posting below for information on rockfalls). Glenwood Canyon has been hailed as a remarkable feat of engineering, and is a gorgeous drive, too. Our library has a great deal of information on the building of the highway through the canyon, including the videos Glenwood Canyon: Ancient Treasure, Modern Marvel and Glenwood Canyon: Mastering Engineering and Environment in the Colorado Rockies. We also have numerous technical reports dealing with the construction project, including design concept studies and environmental impact assessments.
