Northeast Colorado Highway Update

February 2, 2012 - TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - NORTHEAST COLORADO — Maintenance crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation’s northeast region of the state are on full snow shift and will continue to be throughout tonight and tomorrow.

Crews will work 12 hours shifts around the clock. Snow is falling throughout the region, and high winds are expected, which may create blowing snow conditions.

Areas near Fort Morgan, Sterling, and Wiggins are expecting up to 24 inches of snow. Since rain began falling in the areas earlier this evening, roadways are at high risk for becoming icy. Fort Collins, Greeley, and Loveland areas are expecting up to 10 inches of snow accumulation and will experience high winds, especially along the northern I-25 corridor. The Boulder area may receive six to 10 inches of snow in lower elevations, and up to 15 in higher elevations.

Motorists are advised that bridges, overpasses and ramps will freeze first, and should remember “Ice and Snow, Take It Slow.” CDOT would like to remind motorists to give the plows room to do their job and not to pass on the right. Motorists can call 511 or visit for current road condition information across the state.
