GOLDEN, Colo. — Operating out of the Colorado Department of Transportation Emergency Center, a new weekend radio program is about ready to launch in hopes of helping motorists navigate weekend slow-downs on Interstate 70 this winter.

“We have hired a couple of long-time Denver radio folks—Nia Bender and Jim Hudson—to help get people to and from the mountains in a more timely fashion,” said CDOT spokeswoman Amy Ford. “The pair will be on Saturday and Sunday from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and in the afternoon from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.”

CDOT is also partnering with Crystal Radio in the high country, which has excellent coverage in the corridor, to allow for break-ins when there are accidents or delays.

Motorists can check in with the station on the CDOT website or use or the CDOT Mobile app by simply clicking the “Listen Now” play button.

The station will begin service January 17.
