Good morning fellow travelers and truck drivers, below is a up to date post from the Colorado Dept of Transportation, I wanted to get this out to everyone we know so you can keep an eye on things West of Denver about 60 miles. It’s going to be a mess up there until Thursday night, so make arrangements to avoid sending people up there. Drive safe everyone!!
MULTIPLE MOUNTAIN HIGHWAY CLOSURES: I-70 closed both directions over Vail Pass between Vail – Copper Mtn during avalanche cleanup work (All eastbound CMV must stage at Dotsero, Exit 133.) I-70 closed between Copper Mtn – Frisco & Hwy 91 closed from Copper Mtn – Leadville due to safety concerns involving gas leak in Copper Mountain. US 40 Berthoud Pass closed during avalanche mitigation work. US 6 Loveland Pass closed due to adverse conditions.
No estimated reopen time for any highway. Mountain travel in these areas is highly discouraged at this time.
