Planning for Road Closures and Detours during the USA Pro Challenge

August 23, 2012

For seven days across Colorado, transportation is interrupted, delayed and detoured by the USA Pro Challenge. Major highways are closed, and cities like Aspen shut down streets and intersections for the event. For the agencies responsible, like the Colorado Department of Transportation, it's the culmination of months of planning. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen reports.
