Interstate 70 will close in both directions today between Frisco and Vail Pass as Colorado Department of Transportation crews complete winter maintenance operations.
This safety closure will start at 11 a.m. and could last through the early afternoon, CDOT said.
CDOT said it has planned this safety closure in preparation for a busy Presidents Day weekend, which is one of the busiest times for Colorado's ski resorts.
If drivers do head to the mountains this weekend, they should be prepared for winter weather conditions, CDOT said. All drivers should be aware of chain and traction laws as well.
Instead of driving your own car, CDOT said you can also use the Snowstang bus service, which runs between Denver and the Loveland Ski Area, Arapahoe Basin, Steamboat Resort, and Howelsen Hill in Steamboat Springs. Learn more about the Snowstang, scheduling and pricing by clicking here .
