A brief traffic hold will take place Saturday afternoon for eastbound US 6 on Loveland Pass, half-a-mile east of Arapahoe Basin ski resort, an official from the Colorado Department of Transportation said in a statement. 

The hold will take place from 4:00 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. 

These holds are designed as a safety measure to prevent traffic traveling on US 6 from being stopped at known avalanche slide paths due to traffic backups from peak period traffic volumes, according to the CDOT official.

Traffic holds will be also conducted on weekends and holidays beginning at 4 pm., and can last up to but will not exceed 45 minutes.
