Travel information returns for winter
DENVER — As part of its Change Your Peak Drive winter driving education campaign, the Colorado Department of Transportation is expanding its live streaming Mountain Travel Radio service on http://www.COtrip.org, providing motorists with accurate and up-to-date travel information, road conditions and more. The live broadcast will air on Friday afternoons, Saturday and Sunday mornings and afternoons and on holiday Mondays.
With major changes to the mountain corridor, namely the implementation of the traction law and the launch of the Interstate 70 Mountain Express Lane, Mountain Travel Radio will be a communications avenue for I-70 travelers to learn about road conditions directly from Jim Hudson, Nia Bender and Jennifer So, who will report live from the state’s Traffic Operations Center each weekend.
“Conditions along the I-70 Mountain Corridor change extremely quickly, and doing a live broadcast is one of the best ways to inform motorists and keep them updated with the most accurate information,” said Amy Ford, director of communications for CDOT. “Mountain Travel Radio is the best distraction-free resource available to motorists — you can expect to hear regular travel updates, event information, special Peak Time Deals and more.”
Listeners can tune in to the live broadcasts through COtrip.org by clicking the “On-Air” button.
A new Hallmark Channel movie set in Vail, starring Lacey Chabert of “Mean Girls,” will make its debut on Saturday, Jan. 4 at 9 p.m. EST.
