DENVER – Due to the amount of saturation and possible unstable conditions of the state highways, the Colorado Department of Transportation advises motorists to avoid travel unless absolutely necessary in:
- Boulder County
- Larimer County
- Jefferson County
- Clear Creek County
Weather and flooding in these counties will continue to impact roadways. Additionally while a roadway may appear passable, those near water flow may have damage that may not be apparent. Many highways and bridges will remain closed as a precaution until crews are able to evaluate whether or not they are safe for use.
Again, members of the public and media in Boulder, Larimer, Jefferson and Clear Creek Counties are recommended to avoid all travel on state highways and bridges unless absolutely essential.
