Update email from CDOT:

CDOT Stopping Construction & Oversize Vehicles in Preparation for Eclipse Monday
Traffic going to Wyoming and Nebraska for Aug. 21 viewing is expected to be very heavy.



Quote:
STATEWIDE—CDOT is doing everything it can to ensure folks who are driving to Wyoming or Nebraska to view the totality of the solar eclipse on Monday are safe and will all be able to get where they are going.

Throughout the country, preparations have been underway for months for people to flock to areas in the path of "totality" for the eclipse, and Colorado is no different. CDOT has been working with the Colorado State Patrol (CSP), the Wyoming Department of Transportation as well as local, city and state first responders and emergency management officials to develop a plan to try to make Monday as smooth as possible.


Additional plans at:

CDOT

Also worth noting in the link for our area is:

Quote:
Currently, predictions for attendance in Wyoming and Nebraska are very high; some experts are predicting up to 600,000 more people cramming into Wyoming to witness the eclipse. That's basically doubling the population of the state. And we know a lot of those folks are going to be coming from the south, so all Colorado highways heading there (I-25, US 287, US 85, CO 52, etc.) are expected to be busy.
