We here at Stevens West are excited for Spring to finally get here, we have seen an awful lot of snow on our mountain highways , I-70 was closed a lot more this year than in past years for short periods of time due to the amount of snow that fell. The avalanche danger was up and it impacted I-70 by Copper Mountain, and on Vail Pass, and around the town of Frisco Colorado. On the plains of Colorado I-25 , especially up by the Wyoming border, was impacted heavily and I-70 on the Eastern plains close to the Kansas border was closed multiple time due to snow and blowing snow.
We can still receive some substantial snow fall in the month of April so please keep an eye out on CDOT updates, and chain laws are still in effect.
Freight volume has been strong the last four months and we hope it continues so we can provide our partner carriers with partial and full flatbed and step deck loads, to help keep their wheels turning. Our dry van freight has also stayed steady. Please think of us when you are looking for freight to fill your lanes. And let’s Spring into Freight.
