Twin Tunnels project - changes to Clear Creek?

Any effects/hazards/heads-up as a result of the twin tunnels project on the Chicago Creek to Kermit's stretch?

When I first hit the detour I noticed that there was some scaffolding that was might close to the water making for what would be low clearance at higher water. I presume that they've changed that to enable the commercials to run though I'd be interested to see if they had to move anything.

How do you figure those new rock embankments will hold up? They're pretty steep and the top is pretty much the edge of I 70.

Ran that section today. No problems. Lots of signs about blasting signals, so be heads up when they're doing explosive work. Also a sign about a low bridge - but didn't see any low bridge, so not sure what that was for...
