Update: Weld County Re-Opens WCR 54 North of Johnstown
6:21 a.m. UPDATE: WCR 54 from WCR 17 to Hwy 257 is now open.
The Weld County Public Works team has decided to close WCR 54 between WCR 17 & HWY 257 out of concern for the traveling public and the snow plow drivers. (This section is north of Johnstown and Milliken; south of Highway 34). Snow gates will prevent traffic from using this route until our crews determine it is safe to do so.
Crews have reported the wind is increasing in that area, and the plow truck is unable keep up with the drifting across the road. Cars are starting slide off the road, which is causing traffic problems. Safety for both the traveling public and the plow drivers is of utmost importance.
WCR 54 becomes Highway 402 in Loveland and 37th Street in Evans.
