Letter to the editor: US Highway 6 should have reflective markers for safety

Diane Lock
Silverthorne

On Friday, Feb. 11, we drove in whiteout conditions from a restaurant in Keystone to Silverthorne, a 6-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 6. For about 5 of those miles, there are no shops or homes or streetlights and no roadside markers.

Visibility was near zero, but we are familiar with this area, so we hugged what seemed to be the center of the road. But there were cars driving on the median and off the road into the grass and rocks on the shoulder.

Fortunately, it is wide, and we didn’t see any accidents, but I think there should be reflective markers, as there are on Interstate 70, to define the roadway.
