CDOT Considers Using I-70 Shoulders To Ease Gridlock

DENVER (CBS4) – The latest proposal to ease ski weekend gridlock in Colorado is to allow cars on the shoulders through a short stretch of Interstate 70.

The proposal would cost about $30 million, and officials say they need to do more research on the idea.
