‘Limit driving during winter storm’; CDOT working 24 hour shifts starting Monday morning
DENVER -- The Colorado Department of Transportation has issued a travel alert ahead of a projected winter storm that's expected to impact several parts of the state. The agency is urging travelers to delay any holiday travel until Wednesday. Maintenance crews have been assigned to 24-hour shifts beginning Monday morning and the agency is expected to utilize all available resources. Some crews are already pre-treating roadways to prevent snow and ice accumulation. As the snowfall totals increase crews will focus on primary roads and reduce levels of service on secondary roads. The agency says they expect this storm to cause road closures throughout Monday and Tuesday.
