CDOT warns of traffic nightmares for rare total solar eclipse
DENVER -- A rare total solar eclipse will cross the U.S. on Aug. 21. It will be the first such solar eclipse to cross the U.S. from coast to coast in 99 years. The path of totality, a 70-mile wide swath where the moon will completely block out the sun, will go through Wyoming and Nebraska, considered two of the better places to catch the event.
