Move Your Crash!

Traffic crashes — not volume — account for as much as 60 percent of all traffic delays on Interstate 70. A crash that takes 10 minutes to clear can delay traffic for up to an hour. If you’re in a minor crash, do the right thing and Move It!  Learn more about the Move It Law here.

Your Weekend Travel Forecast:
The weather should not be a travel factor other than a chance of rain/snow on Sunday afternoon.

Friday WB – Last year there were no westbound delays due to volume. 

Saturday WB- Some slowing is possible from 7:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. but delays should not be significant.

Saturday EB- Traffic due to volume is unlikely.

Sunday WB – Traffic volumes have not been high on this weekend in recent years and last year there were no delays.  Still, avoid the Noon-7:00 p.m. timeframe to be safe.  Be prepared for rain in the high country and possible snow at the high elevations this afternoon, and check one of the real time info sources before you travel.
