Post Mt. Evans Highway Updates
Mt. Evans Highway Closing This Week

CLEAR CREEK COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is closing the lower portion of the Mount Evans Highway (State Highway 5) – between Echo Lake and Summit Lake – for the season at 8 a.m. on Thursday, October 3.

A forecast of inclement weather and the federal government shutdown lead to the decision to close the bottom segment. The U.S. Forest Service maintains a fee collection booth on SH 5 and the federal shutdown will not allow the booth to be manned. Forest Service crews currently are winterizing their facilities.

CDOT closed the five-mile segment from Summit Lake to the top of Mount Evans (14,264 feet) the day after Labor Day, per agreement with the USFS.

The highway is scheduled to reopen on Friday, May 23, 2014, weather permitting.

Mount Evans Highway Closing for Season Next Week

Road Closed Earlier than Normal for Construction



CLEAR CREEK COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is closing the remaining 10 mile segment of the Mount Evans Highway – State Highway 5 – for the season to most vehicular traffic on Monday, September 22 for construction.

CDOT needs to build a retaining wall along the edge of the highway to improve its stability near Lincoln Lake, about 6 ½ miles up from Echo Lake, requiring a full closure of the roadway. Only authorized vehicles and hunters with a current license for that game unit will be permitted to use the highway during the closure period.

The five mile segment between Summit Lake and the summit was closed to traffic on September 2.

SH 5 is scheduled to reopen for the summer season on Friday, May 22, 2015, weather permitting.
