Cottonwood Pass road now open for the season
The road will be open through fall, conditions permitting
Cottonwood Pass — which runs from Gypsum to the Roaring Fork Valley — is now open and will remain open through the fall, conditions permitting.
Cottonwood Pass drivers are urged to use caution when driving this road. Traffic and weather can have a significant impact on road conditions. Furthermore, portions of the road are not paved, and there are many sharp turns and steep drop-offs.
Regulations prohibit travel on portions of Cottonwood Pass for oversized vehicles without a permit. Any vehicle that exceeds 8 feet 6 inches in width, 14 feet 6 inches in height and 35 feet in length will require a permit to travel over Cottonwood Pass.
An announcement will be made when Cottonwood Pass closes in the fall. For more information, call the Eagle County Road & Bridge Department, 970-328-3540 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
