The Colorado Department of Transportation and the Colorado State Patrol are trying a new strategy to keep the traffic moving.
A planned closure of Interstate 70 in Colorado’s high country Tuesday is yielding good results so far, according to transportation officials.
Colorado’s main east-west highway will be shut down Tuesday while crews blast through a cluster of boulders perched 300 feet above Interstate 70 at Georgetown Hill.
A snow slide has closed Berthoud Pass and likely will stay closed overnight.
Interstate 70 is scheduled to be shut down for at least one day next week so crews can remove some potentially dangerous rocks from above the highway.
