Roads open ahead of schedule

CDOT is reporting that 93 percent of roads damaged in the September floods have reopened ahead of schedule.

The last two remaining roads - U.S. 34 and SH 7 -  will open by the goal date of Dec. 1.

Much of the work is temporary and will be completed in the spring.

More than 1,200 Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Office of Emergency Management (OEM), National Guard and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) employees have been hard at work to make over 400 miles of damaged roadways drive-able.

FEMA is also reporting that of the 18,000 people displaced by the floods, only 139 families are still living in temporary housing.
