Adverse road conditions and multiple automobile crashes led authorities to close the stretch of Interstate 25 shortly after 9 a.m. Monday’s Transfort outreach events in Fort Collins also were canceled.
The interstate reopened shortly after 1 p.m., said Amy Ford, spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Transportation.
During the closure, the transportation department asked motorists to use U.S. 287 to U.S. 85 as an alternate route.
As of Monday afternoon, the transportation department had about 50 plows removing snow in Northern Colorado, Ford said.
Two Transfort route outreach events featuring a new MAX bus were canceled Monday due to the snow storm.
The rest of the week’s events will take place as scheduled as long as weather permits, according to the city of Fort Collins. The events are meant to show the public the new MAX buses and to inform people about bus routes changes scheduled to occur in May.
The events are held at various times and places Tuesday through Thursday. For more information, click here.
