Expect more I-70 traffic in early February

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is advising drivers to anticipate heavier than usual traffic on the Interstate 70 corridor during the first half of February, for the Alpine World Ski Championships (AWSC) in Vail and Beaver Creek.

More than 125,000 people are expected to attend the two-week event, taking place from Monday, Feb. 2, to Sunday, Feb. 15. To assist motorists, current information regarding road and weather conditions and traffic delays will be on CDOT’s website www.cotrip.org.  The site also provides users with access to all of the traffic cameras and electronic message signs along the corridor.

Real-time information related to highway impacts is available by signing up for CDOT’s email and text alerts.  It can be accessed at www.codot.gov and then clicking on the envelope at the bottom right of the front page, labeled as Email List Signup and selecting I-70 West Denver to Glenwood Springs.  In addition to the www.cotrip.org website, information also will be available by calling 511. Following CDOT on Twitter @coloradodot and on Facebook also provides current updates. Read more...
