    Eisenhower tunnel traffic down ~80% due to Coronavirus:
    https://www.vaildaily.com/news/eisen...covid-19-tale/

    Remember when we used to complain about I70 traffic like it was the end of the world that it took us a half hour longer to get to place where lifts would whisk us away to the high alpine? Really puts things into perspective eh?

    really highlights the phrase "you're not in traffic, you are traffic".

    On the bright side, there hasn't been a post here for a week.

    Guess a positive is lighter traffic so safer and prob getting that third lane done quicker.

    Are they moving along with that big project in Denver on I70? Hope so. I70 through Vail pass could definitely use some love too.

    With far less traffic can they get the construction work done faster?

    Just a nice pass closure tonight to let you know that the virus doesn't kill all idiots.

    was headed over to vail valley this afternoon
    not sure if I want to go now unless it clears up 30 cars on the pass each way and 25 of them can't drive
    looks like I'm skiing and not biking after work today
    when you get the car sideways why can't people just chill relax and let her slide then get her back under control?

    No one is driving on I-70 right now. Maybe you just saw a construction slow-down?

    Doesn't look like anyone is heading to the mtns quite yet.

    yeah, but dispersed and BLM camping is still prohibited so that weeds out a lot of us. I know I'm not wanting to pay for an AirBnb/hotel or stay in a commercial campground.

    Yeah, me neither, but you know who will? Jeepers/Razors/dirt bikers. I really hope there isn't an outbreak there that ends up affecting the local population.

    Yeah I've heard the mount of RV cities in Fruita/GJ right now is insane. Really the only area it'll be an issue is at the grocery stores as most restaurants will still do takeout only. If I were going I'd plan to have all my supplies beforehand, but I doubt the OHV crowd will do that...

    Hotels and AirBnbs are limited in number/capacity too. So while town is opening up, the capacity is significantly less than normal for the spring, especially considering virtually no one is flying. There's plenty of space for people to enjoy things there without being on top of each other.

    I think it makes sense, and I hope the mountain towns can open up this way too... although they're currently in mud season, so they have another 4-6 weeks before having to worry about it.

    Looks like June 1st. Not surprisingly, although it is mud season, I see tons of out of town plates and Denver day trippers now, it'll only increase.

    Yep, I've noticed lots more people on the road over the last 3-4 days here in town (around Boulder) too. People are getting restless.
