Maintenance in Lyons Area Draws Kudos

Steve Lopez of Lyons, CO, called CDOT on Feb. 3 to offer his compliments and thanks to all of the CDOT maintenance employees who work in his area and have been operating the big snowplows nearly nonstop since Sunday, Jan. 31.

"I really have to thank these folks," he said.  "I was out on SH 66 going east to I-25, and that's a tough drive even in good weather.  I couldn't believe how good the road conditions were," he said.  He also drove U.S. 36 during the storm and had the same reaction.

"We have excellent road conditions here in Colorado, even over the passes," he said.  "I can't imagine the courage it must take to operate those plows in snowy conditions like we had on Monday and Tuesday.  I really appreciate all your employees do."
