Reprise of Winter Briefly Closes Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park
According to park officials, at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday the road was temporarily closed at Milner Pass on the west side of the park and Rainbow Curve on the east side of the park due to snow and poor visibility.
"Due to the major road construction work on Trail Ridge Road, there are currently no fog lines or center lines on a large section of the road above treeline," the park said in explaining the closure. "This is a temporary closure that will continue through the night. People are encouraged to call the Trail Ridge Road Recorded Information Line at (970) 586-1222 for a current update of the status of the road."
