A system producing heavy snow in the central mountains arrives in SE Colorado overnight Sunday into Monday bringing moisture, windy conditions and colder temperatures. Snow showers will be possible across the I-25 corridor to start the day. This system will produce bands of snow through the day Monday. Areas under these bands will see periods of heavy snowfall which, with windy conditions, could create travel difficulties. Several inches of accumulation will be possible in areas where these bands develop. For more information click the ‘Weather’ tab...
Colorado Congressman Mark Udall says the state need $2.5 billion to pay for improvements to Interstate 70.
Udall, a Democrat from Boulder, visited the sinkhole that opened up in the eastbound lanes last week near Vail. The sinkhole, which was about 20 feet across, closed the highway for 2 days, and continues to cause delays, with only one lane open in each direction.
Heavy rain and snow melt runoff washed out a culvert under the road, opening the sinkhole.
Udall says the $2.5 billion would be used to make improvements Colorado's largest east-west highway between Clear Creek County and Eagle County.
