Holiday Travel Off To Smooth Start In Colorado

(AP) Passengers and planes are moving like clockwork through Denver International Airport, while traffic is flowing smoothly along Colorado roadways as the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend begins. D.I.A. Spokesman Chuck Cannon says thing's couldn't be better at the state's largest airport, with good weather, on–time departures and fast–moving security lines.

Some 150,000 passengers are expected to travel through the
airport Wednesday, but Sunday could be even busier, with 158,000 travelers forecast. Drivers are also being treated to good weather and smooth traffic.

Transportation Department Spokesman Eric Escudero says officials don't expect any wintry weather in the state, but motorists heading east out of Colorado could see snow, and lots of it.
