Mountain events draw big weekend crowds
The Denver Post
Attendance boomed and sales hummed across Colorado during the Fourth of July weekend, merchants and travel officials said Sunday.
Near-record traffic was reported in some locations, and even those below that lofty mark said business was an improvement on recent gloomy times.
Friday was the fifth-busiest day in the Eisenhower Tunnel’s 36-year history, as more than 47,000 cars passed through the 2-mile stretch of Interstate 70, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.
CDOT began reporting congestion-related delays in the eastbound lanes shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday.
On a typical Friday, more than 30,000 cars pass through.
