DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is reminding drivers to anticipate heavier-than-normal traffic as people hit the road over the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend.
Heavy traffic volume will likely be seen along Interstate 70 west of Denver and on other mountain highways for the next few days, CDOT said.
Following the holiday, CDOT expects traffic numbers to remain high through mid-April due to increased snow amounts and additional travel opportunities over the Presidents Day weekend and spring break.
As road conditions can change quickly this time of year, drivers can get updated road and weather information by calling 511 or by checking cotrip.org.
CDOT also reminded travelers about alternative transit options to Loveland Ski Area, Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain and Steamboat Springs. Snowstang is offering a two-for-one roundtrip ticketing option through February. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit: ridebustang.com.
