DENVER - The Colorado Department of Transportation is warning drivers to expect extremely heavy traffic this weekend on Interstate 70.
"Due to multiple large attendance events in our mountain communities, combined with the off week for football, the coming weekend has historically proven to be one of the busiest of the season," CDOT warned on its website.
CDOT is expecting long delays heading west each morning and returning east each night.
Officials are suggesting drivers avoid I-70 during the peak times of 1 pm. and 6 p.m.
