GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is reminding drivers who travel on Interstate 70 about the yearly sun glare problem in the Floyd Hill area.
From early November through February, morning drivers can encounter a blinding sun glare as they pass Floyd Hill (east of Idaho Springs). The glare occurs from 7 to 8:30 a.m. The sun’s angle during the late fall and early winter is the problem.
CDOT will be providing advance notification of the potential hazard by displaying messages on electronic billboards and alerting motorists of the sun glare to use caution by driving slower.
