Delays expected on eastbound I-70 this weekend
Drivers heading eastbound on Interstate 70 either today or Sunday should allow for extra time in anticipation of increased traffic to Denver for the AFC Championship game.
The Colorado Department of Transportation issued a press release Friday, reminding drivers to brace for delays and slower travel times because of increased traffic, particularly between Frisco and Idaho Springs.
With Monday being a holiday — Martin Luther King, Jr., Day — people should anticipate heavy traffic on I-70 in both directions that day, as well.
Drivers can visit cotrip.org or call 511 for updates on current road and traffic conditions.
Game time between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots is 1 p.m. Sunday.
