    If you are a good person seeing a cop makes you feel safe. You must be a sinner.

    The frontage road is icy, bumpy, slow and scary. You might get shot at by some Dumont bumpkin. Definitely stay on I70.

    Drove over Cottonwood Pass this morning on the way to CB... 4 hours from the Boulder area, and I even got caught behind some slower campers and trucks (that I eventually passed). They did a damn nice job on that road, it's brand new from BV all the way to Taylor Res.

    have they finished the west side yet? it was paved when I went over on Labor Day, but wasn't striped or anything (which made it a little spooky in the dark on Friday night). but agreed, much improve.

    Yep, totally done. It looked like they were doing some finish work about halfway down, but nothing major.

    Might be a stupid question, but does anyone know if they built the road over the existing dirt road, or did they create a new road corridor? I could have sworn the road was shorter, and it looked totally new in some areas.

    Did VR kick in any $ for the road? That'll shorten the trip to CB for me.

    I'm pretty sure they didn't do any re-routes, based on my recollection

    And I70 was a shitshow today, both ways to Denver. CDOT warning that the tunnel was closed, after the point of no return. Gee thanks guys. Fire closed the canyon too for my way back up. Driving around Denver sucked too. I don't know how people do it on a daily basis. Luckily there are lots of breweries.

    Why was the tunnel closed? What fire?

    It saves your brain and focuses you on why you are driving west.

    What more do you want. You can take a deep breath, look to your right, and in the back, and be like, This is why I live in Colorado, for a bit.

    Tunnel closed for a crash, an SUV was trying to board slide the guardrail and was still perfectly balanced there when I drove by. Fire was in Clear Creek somewhere, don't know the details but it closed the canyon.

    I was riding Centennial Cone from the Mayhem Gulch TH in the Canyon yesterday afternoon. Must have just missed the fire.

    I could see smoke from Denver around 4pm. Drove the canyon around 11am on the way down and nada.

    Understandable. But damn they put a lot of time in for improving it half the year.
