Slow speed transportation

Slow speed transportation

Vail Pass closed yesterday afternoon. Then CDOT closed all of I 70 from Golden to Eagle almost 100 miles. I was supposed to meet with a student from Vail at 7:30 am this morning and he just called at around 10 am to let me know the pass is open and he is on his way. It was closed for a good part of 24 hours.

One might think that this is just when it snows but it is not. It is like this every weekend from Denver to the Ski Areas. When I go to Boulder on Sundays I am going the opposite direction of the traffic each way so I miss it but can see it. What a mess. We had Governors and Transportation Directors for years who poured billions into the road system in Denver without a dime for the High Country.

I guess that is the price of our great views. g
