Winter delays ahead

Truck traffic keeps the Grand Valley supplied with goods from the Front Range, and that can be daunting with winter weather delays over the mountains. Earlier this month, the Colorado Motor Carriers Association put out an “Action Alert,” telling its members to contact state officials to stop the Colorado Department of Transportation’s plan to “halt commercial vehicles from using the I-70 corridor during adverse winter events.” But CDOT spokeswoman Amy Ford said that isn’t the plan, at least not all of it.


The Colorado Department of Transportation doesn’t want to see a repeat of last February’s perfect storm.
That occurred Feb. 9, when up to 30 inches of snow fell on Loveland Pass amid winds gusting to 30 mph, all on the worst day of the week possible: a Sunday evening when throngs of Denver-area residents returned home from a weekend of skiing.
