I was going to grab something just over the county line in Summit County, but this accident at the Georgetown exit had pretty much closed I-70 East most of the morning and they had just opened one lane eastbound and I didn't have time to get stuck in that traffic coming back down. I guess a flatbed hauling this lumber took the corner a little fast and the load shifted and over he went. Nobody hurt from what I heard.




The white semi is the one that tipped. It was a little wrecked on the right front, but not too bad. A few more feet to the side of the road and the Trading Post would've had an unexpected delivery!

Cool tag, RJ posted right in time, I was in the garage. Not the best ride to get sniped on but I figured 8am would give him enough time. Guess I'm not going to El Paso county yet.

Nice Grab, I think I passed you on the way down, I left the bridge at 7:30 but had over 1 hour ride to get back home.

Thanks for the supplemental pictures. Interesting to think that design and the 1st bridge was done around 100 yrs ago.

I got there about 7:40. You would've had it if you had a smartphone.

I like my "Dumbphone", it stays charged for many days and don't have to charge it every night.

If I knew you were coming up we could have grabbed it together and maybe breakfast at The Whistle Stop, maybe next time.

Did you ride all the way from CS?
