The rockslide occurred about nine miles east of Glenwood Springs in Glenwood Canyon (Colorado) at 7:42 am, November 25, 2004, according officials from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).

Glenwood Springs is about halfway between Vail and Grand Junction, Colorado. The rockslide caused the closure of Interstate 70 for rock removal and repair, and forced commercial trucks tourists and commuters to take a 200 mile detour, since it is the only highway through this rocky, steep canyon area of Interstate 70.
