Northeast Colorado Storm Update

February 4, 2014 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Maintenance crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT’s) northeast region of the state are on 12 hour snow shifts in the Boulder, Fort Collins, Fort Morgan, Estes Park, Greeley, Julesburg, Longmont, Loveland, and Sterling areas.

The snow shifts will last 24 hours a day until the storm passes. Crews are working in shifts from midnight to noon, and noon to midnight. Highways were washed out during the September flooding, especially those that underwent temporary repairs, will be monitored carefully to ensure they remain safe throughout the storm.

Areas in the mountains are expected to receive the most snow and a few inches is expected to fall across the northern Front Range. Highways are expected to be particularly icy due to below-freezing temperatures, and very slick conditions should be expected. Motorists are strongly encouraged to reduce speeds and drive for winter weather, keeping in mind that bridges, overpasses and ramps will freeze first.

CDOT encourages motorists to give plows plenty of room to work. If you can't see our drivers, they cannot see you. Remember “Ice and Snow, Take It Slow.”
