A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
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.
