Today is the third day of the Grand Avenue Bridge Closure. According to reports and observations, traffic problems begin during the morning and afternoon commutes when motorists take back roads, like South Midland Avenue, to avoid the detour. CDOT and the City of Glenwood Springs want to get 700 vehicles per hour off downtown streets during peak hours. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh talked to two commuters from New Castle to find out how they’re helping reach that goal.

John McEuen dropped by the Wholly Bozos show on KDNK with his musical buddy Matt Cartsonis. They brought some nitty and some gritty along with great big smiles, not to mention a beautiful guitar.

We hope we can rope them into returning to KDNK's airwaves.
