    I wouldn't even call them potholes
    the concrete below the pavement is starting to get eaten too
    a perfect symbol of how inept cdot is at managing our roads, don't worry they keep their fiber optic and camera system fully updated maintained and funded, but can't fix a pothole to save their life

    I've watched a few people get absolutely tossed driving through there

    They are fixing it today.
    Heads up! CDOT will close westbound Interstate 70 at the Silverthorne Interchange (Exit 205) tomorrow (March 18) for asphalt patching operations. Work will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the bridge's two lanes crossing U.S. 6 east and Highway 9 north. Worker and motorist safety requires that all westbound traffic be detoured from I-70 to U.S. 6/Loveland Pass. Traffic can return to westbound I-70 at Silverthorne, just west of the work zone.

    CDOT is undertaking the patching operation tomorrow to take advantage of a favorable weather window, in advance of any upcoming snowstorms.

    Yo Fast Freddie, Cdot is hiring!

    You'd be the perfect person to schedule pothole repair, lane closures, traffic management and the like.

    Funny, I almost posted about this yesterday. Thought the bridge was falling apart as I cruised over at 65 mph.

    Traffic was backed up from 6 all the way until Silver Plume. Better than a car falling through the road though.

    yeah bro, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't make a good gov't employee

    but I am going to start my political carrer in 5 - 10 years, at that point I'll start holding people accountable for stupidity and waste, then again I'm pretty sure I'll never get elected to office, one can always dream

    My son is on the Senate Budget Committee. Trump is in favor of a gas tax increase. Republicans canít call it that, so theyíve labeled it a Motor Vehicle User Fee.

    Dems are like, what are the Republicans up too here.
    Thatís a Tax increase,no fucking way.

    All that means is the bald tire RWD van is legal as long as they have chains in a box under the back seat.

    4WD brodozer with oversized mud tires that are worse than all season in snow is legal all the time!

    I was hanging out at the taco truck this weekend and parked next to it was a TRD Pro Tundra with literally completely bald tires which means that they have been on all winter.

    I said to the person next to me, "that is why Vail Pass is a shitshow".

    So, essentially there will be enforcement checkpoints further increasing the suckage, with no part of the law effectively decreasing the suckage? That does not sound positive.

    It will only increase the suckage for the people who live below the checkpoint. It will also be a reason for the city folk to wait until they hit the parking lot to consume their THC products, and maybe the left lane will be fast again!

    Where you seeing they are gonna have checkpoints? I don't see that anywhere. Checkpoints would require a huge manpower increase which would be included in the fiscal note linked above if they were gonna happen.

    Check points will never happen. We've covered the feasibility of this in the past.
    This bill is more about awareness and a slight revenue stream.

    The article said Scott "envisioned checkpoints" as part of mandated enforcement, the law itself doesn't prescribe them specifically as mentioned so makes sense they won't happen.

    Scott can continue to envision whatever he wants. He's a legislator not an agency responsible for doing this. CDOT ain't going to take on a massive program without funding to do such. Even if they'd make some revenue back I can't imagine it would be cost neutral.

    Expect criticism from actual engineers who know FHWA criteria so don't be offended.
    It seems simple in the West (see what I did there) with all the land around Gypsum. Could spur the local economy with tire and accessory shops. It would exclude bald tired workers in Vail metro unfortunately.

    Front range would be a fair bit harder. If they did something like annex Bandemire Speedway and funnel all of the rejects into a holding pen there for tires/autosock application; it would eliminate the big first hill that causes half the problems in Morrison.

    Not sure where else they could buy land but maybe around Dumont or something. Would miss the big first hills but keep them out of the higher regions.

    It could be an agenda to only check tires if traffic is moving at less than 5mph in blizzard conditions.

    But I'm just spitballing ala building a double decker highway, supertrain, etc, and I've never seen the setup in CA.
    So what would an engineer who knows FHWA criteria say?


    Also, No matter the conclusion, I think any talk or rhetoric is helpful. All but the most inept traveler knows CO is getting tougher on tires and I just can't see how that's anything negative. I've never been to Canadia but I know I might have to review my driving infractions before going because of random net chat. Had no idea that was even a thing if not for that.

    spot checks instead of 100% checkpoints?

    Seems like it would be easiest when things are already stopped or slowed...a few of my slogs this year wouldn't have been further harmed by a 20 second tire check. But again, if conditions are shit, doesn't CSP/CDOT have other priorities? And if conditions are fine in a random dry October day, how can they justify a tire check?

    Experienced season-long M+S requirements with random checkpoints over a season in Whistler, but never actually got stopped in one. That road has a similar ratio of poorly equipped vehicles, but not nearly the volume.

    Agree w/Rideski that maybe a bunch of publicity/signs/etc. will force a few dozen folks to reconsider driving up with crap tires, and that may provide a semblance of benefit. It only takes one car to ruin it for everybody.

    pulling my camper over Vail Pass on Friday, fingers crossed that it isn't too gnarly.

    Hopefully you've got really good snow tires?
