The public will have an opportunity to ask questions, discuss concerns and provide feedback at the meeting.

Weekend Travel Forecast:
The weather forecast looks just about perfect - warm temperatures and 0% chance of precipitation Friday through Sunday!   If you plan around the timeframes outlined below, you should have a delay-free trip to and from the mountains this weekend!

Friday WB – Light traffic is possible from Noon to 6:00 p.m. 

Saturday WB – Traffic congestion is possible 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.  Last year traffic during this timeframe resulted in an extra 15 minutes of travel time between C470 and Silverthorne.

Saturday EB – Traffic volume should not cause any delays.

Sunday EB – Expect congestion to begin around 1:00 p.m. and end soon after 6:30 p.m.  Last year the delays peaked between 3:00-6:00 p.m. with only 15 minutes extra travel time from Vail to Golden.  Instead of battling traffic, take advantage of a discounted activity, meal or hotel room with one of our GoI70 Peak Time Deals.
