While crews are still plowing their way to the top of Mount Evans, enough progress has been made to open the road from Echo Lake to Summit Lake, according to CDOT.

The road is still closed from Summit Lake to the actual summit, and the newly opened stretch will only stay open if the weather permits.

The AP reports that CDOT expects to open Mount Evans Road all the way up to the summit sometime next week.
