Holiday weekend means a slow drive home
DENVER — The slowdown is in the usual spot along eastbound I-70: from Georgetown to Idaho Springs. And it’s the usual crawl for drivers, driving home after the 3-day, Labor Day weekend.
The Colorado Department of Transportation typically advises drivers coming home after a 3-day weekend to try and leave before 11 a.m. or after 5 p.m. on a getaway day.
FOX31 Denver caught up with a number of drivers at gas stations in Idaho Springs. One family is returning from a camping trip to Dillon.
“Hopefully (the traffic) is behind us. We got most of it, it was a pretty long trip coming back,” says the driver, while stretching.
CDOT says its “100 days of heat” DUI campaign officially ends Tuesday at 3:00 a.m.
