Denverites and Coloradans in the Front Range dug out after a massive snow storm covered the state over the weekend.
Highways and freeways were closed Monday morning in various parts of the state, mainly the east, north, and south: Interstate 70 from Airpark Road to the Kansas border; Interstate 25 from Wellington to the Wyoming border; US 6 in both directions at Loveland Pass; and Interstate 76 from Sterling to Wiggins. I-25 between the Denver and Colorado Springs subway reopened before 9 a.m. Monday.
“I think the big message is that it’s dig day,” said Matt Inzeo, spokesman for the Colorado Department of Transportation. “Given the volume that actually sank from Colorado Springs to Wyoming and then from the (continental) divide to the Kansas border, this is a pretty massive, widespread effort.”
