A heads-up was posted on the Evergreen Neighbors & Friends Facebook group that 285 headed west is at a standstill near 470. Someone else posted that Parmaleee Gulch is all ice. CDOT may be shutting the highway down, we'll keep you posted.
Please be careful if you are heading home soon, or out to see the game.
Anyone been out and about yet this morning? How are the roads?
"Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” -King T'Challa, Black Panther
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it. ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. ~Winston Churchill
Just got to work a little before 7. Some parts of 285 were just wet; soaked with Mag Chloride seemingly, but that was the exception. Most was snowpacked and icy. Windy point was slow going as was the Luge. Once you get past the C470 exits on 285 the road is mostly dry and clear. So long as you have good tires, keep a good following distance and keep your speed down you'll be fine. I left at 0550 and averaged around 40 - 45 mph, stopped for coffee and still got to work at my regular time.
