What Will I-70 Traffic Bring?

Our friends at OpenSnow.com are calling for an active weather pattern through the end of February, and just a little bit of weather can have big impacts on Interstate 70.  Be sure to check the weather and CoTrip.org before you travel, and plan for extra travel time if snow is in the forecast.

Friday WB – There could be some slowing between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m.

Saturday WB – Traffic will be heavy from 6:30 a.m. to about 11:00 a.m.  Last year, this congestion resulted in 30 minutes extra travel time from C470 to Silverthorne.

Saturday EB- Slower travel speeds could be encountered from about 2:00 pm.-6:00 p.m.

Sunday WB – Traffic is unlikely, unless weather or accident-related.

Sunday EB – Moderate to heavy traffic is likely between Noon and 7:00 p.m.  Avoid the rush and take advantage of a GoI70.com Peak Time Deal!
