If you’re still looking for Memorial Day weekend activities and you like mildly frightening drives — good news!

Mt. Evans Highway is opening on Friday.

CDOT announced today that it finished plowing the road to the top of the 14er and is finishing up plowing the parking lots as we speak digitally communicate.

More than 150,000 people visit the Mt. Evans Recreation area each summer, according to CDOT, and you should expect heavy traffic and limited parking.
