IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – A wintry forecast and the government shutdown has prompted the Colorado Department of Transportation to close all of Mount Evans Road early.

The stretch from Summit Lake to the peak closed the day after Labor Day. The lower portion will close for the season Thursday morning.

The road up Mount Evans is the highest paved road in the nation.
