Winter Traffic Patterns (October-April)

I-70 is congestion-free the majority of the time, and with just a bit of planning travelers can enjoy more mountains and less traffic. Below is the typical winter weekend traffic pattern:

Westbound:
Friday: light to moderate traffic is likely from about 4-9 p.m.
Saturday: traffic can be expected from about 6:30-11 a.m. with peak traffic occurring around 8 a.m.
Sunday: Sunday morning traffic is consistently lighter than Saturday morning, and sometimes non-existent. To play it safe, avoid around 7 a.m. 

Eastbound:
Saturday: traffic typically builds around 2 p.m., peaks around 4-5 p.m. and drops dramatically after 7 p.m. Expect congestion on Saturdays.
Sunday: I-70 starts to fill up earlier than it does on Saturday, as early as 1 p.m. Traffic peaks around 4-5 p.m. and drops dramatically after 7 p.m. Expect heavy traffic on Sundays.

Please note: this travel forecast is based on historical traffic data. Weather, road conditions and accidents are impossible to predict and can have significant impacts on I-70 travel.

Holiday Weekends:
When a national holiday falls on a Monday, you can count on Monday afternoon eastbound traffic to mimic a typical Sunday pattern, but with potentially more volume.

Metering:
Traffic metering goes into effect during very high volume times and can occur at multiple I-70 on-ramps and/or the Eisenhower Tunnel traveling eastbound. Metering controls the flow of traffic towards the tunnel so traffic does not back up in the tunnel, causing potential safety issues.
