Avalanche control: U.S. 160 Wolf Creek Pass to be closed for at least two hours on Monday morning



CDOT will perform winter maintenance operations on US 160 Wolf Creek Pass tomorrow, Mon., Jan. 2. Crews will close the highway and begin work at 5:30 a.m. Westbound traffic will be stopped just west of the ski area near the pass summit (MP 167) and eastbound traffic will be stopped near Treasure Falls (MP 157). 

Travelers can expect a lengthy delay of at least two hours, possibly more. Please be aware this delay may be extended should unusual circumstances arise. Regional travelers should plan ahead, allow for extra travel time, or arrive at the closure points before 5:30 a.m. to avoid the lengthy closure.
