HIGH WIND RESTRICTION- EB/WB I-70 Eisenhower Tunnel - Denver/C-470, MM 215-259. No travel allowed for light high-profile vehicles. EB high-profile vehicles may stage at Copper Mtn., Exit 195.
Strong and potentially damaging winds are expected to develop across portions of the Front Range Mountains and Foothills. Wind gusts in excess of 75 mph can be expected in wind prone areas. Some gusts near 90 mph over places such as Berthoud Pass, the I-70 corridor near Georgetown, and higher ridges in the foothills west of Boulder. Wind will also create hazardous and difficult driving conditions especially for drivers of high profile vehicles with the potential to blow them over or off the road. Strong winds will also cause areas of blowing snow and reduced visibilities in exposed areas.
