DENVER - Many state services are closed in honor of Presidents' Day Monday, including Colorado driver's license offices, the Department of Public Health and Environments vital records offices and state executive branch departments.
All Colorado State Parks will be open and staffed, though Colorado Parks and Wildlife administrative offices and visitor centers will be closed.
Despite the holiday, state troopers will be patrolling the highways and Department of Transportation maintenance crews will be working as necessary.
Trash pick-up in Denver will be delayed by one day. All city buses and the lightrail are running on their regular schedules.
City parking meters are free.
Because Presidents' Day has historically been characterized by heavy traffic, CDOT is expecting an at least an hour delay on eastbound I-70 between Silverthorne and C-470 for holiday travelers returning to Denver.
