Truckers driving Colorado’s I-70 corridor can now use their mobile phone to dial up the Colorado State Patrol’s new website to find out everything from road conditions to where to park safely by going to www.TruckI70.com.
“With Colorado’s ever changing weather conditions, truckers heading up I-70 between milepost 133 (Dotsero exit) and milepost 259 (Morrison exit) must carry sufficient chains to be in compliance with Colorado’s chain laws between September and the end of May,” said Captain Tim Keeton, Commander of the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) Motor Carrier Safety Section.
“Commercial motor vehicles driving along the I-70 corridor face numerous challenges,” Captain Keeton pointed out. “To make it easy and quickly accessible for truckers to find the latest information on road conditions – especially when inclement weather is an issue, we developed the website. The site also provides links for additional information at the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) site.”
The new www.truckI70.com site provides detailed maps of safe locations as to where to chain up or park, as well as a video on the law and motor carrier safety tips.
