Berthoud Pass - One Lane Open

June 27, 2011 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - GRAND COUNTY – One lane now is open on U.S. 40 at Berthoud Pass where a slide earlier today closed the entire highway, about seven miles east of Winter Park.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is alternating eastbound and westbound traffic through the area.  However, a large boulder remains (see attached pictures) on the highway and equipment is on the way to break it up into smaller pieces for removal.

A work zone is being created around the site to open the roadway to one lane in each direction, which is expected to occur later today

CDOT will send additional updates as they become available.
