Westbound traffic exits on the Frontage Road off the closure of I-70 at Floyd Hill closed due to weather Monday December 31,2007. Frank Benton, meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said there is still blowing and drifting snow in the area and that gusts are at 50 mph. He said because the temperatures will remain cold, "the snow isn't going anywhere" and that tonight, wind gusts will only drop to about 35 mph. The snow and blowing snow advisory issued by the National Weather Service remains in effect until noon. Colorado Department of Transportation officials are also being cautious about opening the highway too soon. CDOT spokeswoman Mindy Crane said they began avalanche control work along the closed stretch of highway early this morning, but progress has been slow due to high winds - changing the hope that the highway might be open by noon. "We have been able to get a little bit done, but the wind has been tough," she said. "We don't have an idea of when we'll open." (GEORGE KOCHANIEC, JR/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) ***
