A workman walks through the almost completed I-70 westbound tunnel bore in Idaho Springs, CO Sept. 16, 2014. Now that blasting work has been completed to widen out the bore, crews will be moving in the massive tunnel form liner structures to start placing concrete for the new tunnel lining. These tunnel form liner structures called rebar gantries stand about three stories tall. Once in place, concrete will be poured which should keep the tunnel sturdy for 75-100 years. Photo By Helen H.
