Road crews with the Colorado Department of Transportation are getting ready for this weekend’s heavy snowfall and winter storm.
I-70 was closed between Limon and Goodland, Kansas, as wind gusts reached up to around 60 mph on the Eastern Plains.
Sunday’s fresh powder is a welcome sight for skiers and boarders, but it was making travel a little tricky along the Front Range and Interstate 70 corridor.
The Colorado Department of Transportation has significantly increased spending and created new programs to battle Sunday afternoon traffic headaches on Interstate 70 during the winter.
All lanes of Interstate 70 reopened by 5:30 p.m. in Colorado’s high country after snow and traffic accidents choked portions of it closed.
There could be a delay clearing snow off a busy stretch of Interstate 70 in the high country from Idaho Springs to the Eisenhower Tunnel because plow drivers for that vital stretch of road don’t have a home.
The calendar may say it’s the fall season, but the weatherman says it’s time to brace for some wintry weather in Colorado.
Several accidents and snowy conditions closed Interstate-70 at the Eisenhower Tunnel for a short time on Sunday.

People trying to get back to the Denver metro area from the mountains experienced major delays on Sunday.
