DENVER - The Colorado Department of Transportation is expecting heavy traffic this weekend on the Interstate 70 mountain corridor.

Many resorts are holding crowd drawing events this weekend; combined with a weather forecast calling for sun and the recent heavy snowfalls, motorists should anticipate delays when traveling the corridor in both directions throughout the weekend.

CDOT says the weekend before the Super Bowl is historically one of the busiest weekends.

CDOT has launched a campaign to encourage mountain visitors to "Change Your Peak Time" when traveling back to Denver, by skipping the rush between 1p.m. and 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
