Colorado state patrol launches trucker website

Daily News staff report

A new Colorado State Patrol website is providing specific information for truckers on the Interstate 70 mountain corridor to help them anticipate and prepare for changing conditions on the highway, the agency announced last week.

“Commercial motor vehicles driving along the I-70 corridor face numerous challenges,” CSP commander Captain Tim Keeton stated in a recent release. “To make it easy and quickly accessible for truckers to find the latest information on road conditions – especially when inclement weather is an issue, we developed the website. The site also provides links for additional information at the Colorado Department of Transportation Website.”

The website, accessible on the road from smartphones, provides updates on road conditions, safe parking and chain-up locations as well as a video on laws for commercial vehicles and motor carrier safety trips.
