DENVER – If you’re planning on driving through the mountain corridor early Wednesday, be ready for some delays as crews do avalanche mitigation on several mountain passes.
US Highway 6 will close at Loveland Pass around 6:45 a.m. in both directions for mitigation, and is expected to be closed past 8 a.m. Loveland Pass Ski area will be open after the mitigation work is done.
Both US Highway 40 at Berthoud Pass and I-70 near the Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnel will also be closed before 8 a.m. for similar avalanche work.
The Colorado Department of Transportation says drivers should expect traffic to be held for between 20 and 30 minutes along I-70 and Highway 40.
