Weather on Independence Pass prompts early closure
Independence Pass closed Wednesday afternoon and is expected to remain closed for the season.
The pass, which connects Pitkin and Lake counties via Highway 82, was originally slated to close Friday, but inclement weather forced the early closure, according to Colorado Department of Transportation spokeswoman Tracy Trulove.
CDOT aims to reopen the pass each spring before Memorial Day weekend, weather permitting.
