Top of Mount Evans Highway closed for season

IDAHO SPRINGS — Even though the weather still says it’s summer, the top portion of the Mount Evans Highway is closed for the winter.

The five-mile segment Colorado Highway 5 closed this morning. The state transportation department must close that stretch of the road the day after Labor Day under an agreement with the U.S. Forest Service.

Other key seasonal roads in Colorado, including Trail Ridge Road and Independence Pass, remain open.
