Northeast Colorado Highway Update
October 26, 2011 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Roads slushy in areas but mostly clear.
BOULDER, LARIMER, LOGAN, MORGAN, PHILLIPS, SEDGWICK, WASHINGTON, WELD, AND YUMA COUNTIES — Although the first winter storm hit hard during the night, maintenance crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation have worked to make sure roadways are clear for motorists and will continue to do so until the storm passes.
Although some areas remain slushy, the mostly-wet roads are providing no major problems. Downed power lines and tree branches are causing some issues, but crews are working to remove debris from the roads and repair power lines as quickly as possible.
As with any storm, conditions vary throughout the region and will continue to do so throughout the duration of storm. Here is a brief update on sections of northeastern Colorado:
CDOT would like to remind motorists to reduce speeds in areas where the roads are wet and slushy.
