Breckenridge - I-70 or 285???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
We are arriving at DIA Sunday morning the 23rd. I have seen all sorts of horror posts about I-70 on the weekend and was wondering if 285 to 9 is a reasonable alternative to Breckenridge? Also, how do you find out leaving the airport what the status of I-70 through the tunnel is before you commit to going that way?

Go via I-70. 285 is definitely more scenic, but really it's not going to save time. I don't think it's worth the hassle. However, if you'd like to stop at the Southpark Saloon in Alma, then it's worth it.

Assuming you're not getting in at 5am traffic later on Sunday will be going the other direction.

^^^Yep. Take I70. Sunday westbound traffic is not nearly as bad as the day before. Unless there is a major accident, avalanche, Elk crossing splatfest, it should be a pretty quick drive for you...

Thanks, I didn't know if that being the start of the Christmas holiday might make Sunday bad also.
