Weekend Travel Forecast:
Light snow is forecasted for Saturday night, but weather shouldn’t be much of a factor this weekend.
Here is the traffic you might expect this weekend:
Westbound to the Mountains
Only very minor delays are expected Friday evening. Saturday traffic the past two years built up quickly at 6:00 a.m., peaked at 8:00 a.m. with an approximate 45-60 minute delay, and traffic dropped off dramatically after 10:00 a.m. There were no westbound morning delays on the last Sunday in February in the last two years.
Eastbound to Front Range
Past Saturdays, eastbound congestion started at 2:00 p.m., peaked at 4:00 and dropped to almost no delays just after 6:00 p.m. On Sunday, folks headed for home earlier resulting in traffic building closer to Noon. The peak hit between 4:00-4:30, and the road cleared by about 6:30*.
*REMEMBER, CDOT has frequently metered traffic EB on weekend evenings which means up to 20 minute traffic stops at the tunnel. This can sometimes cause the delays to continue past the usual 6:00-6:30 p.m. timeframe. Check GoI70.com/mobile before you jump on the road to see if CDOT is metering, and what the traffic is like at that moment.
