Summer road trips for Grand Junction residents may mean an adventure on I-70 to Denver. Some folks drive this route or part of it every day for work and know the struggle, while others are shocked to head down the road and find it in less than ideal conditions.

After recently completing my first round trip to Denver and back, I was also surprised to feel like I was driving across the moon for most of the trip. I felt the drive to Denver from GJ is worse than the conditions found on the trip back to the western slope. What things would you improve about I-70?
