CDOT announced plans Tuesday morning for avalanche control work on Monarch Pass very early Wednesday, Nov. 27, which may close the road for up to 3 hours.

CDOT will be closing U.S. 50 from mile marker 190 to mile marker 210 with approximately 180 minute delays at 5:45 a.m. to start our control work at daybreak.

“We do not anticipate extended closure, but with the amount of snow that we have received in the past few days, it may take a little longer to remove what might come down to make the roadway safe for the traveling public,” says William Riddle of CDOT’s Maintenance Section 7.
