Many secondary Colorado highways are no longer plowed at night.
Jazz is right, I should have mentioned that in my previous post. Those signs have been up for a few years too stating just that, I'm believing 2008 is when that happened. If memory serves the times are from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Very unlikely you'll run into snowy,icy winter conditions.
More likely you'll run into winds and blowing sand.

Apparently, you haven't driven the entire route. Only the western portions of Hwy. 90 are out in the desert. The portion of old Hwy. 90 west of Montrose to Naturita goes over the Uncompahgre Plateau, reaching elevations of nearly 10,000 ft. In a normal winter, that part of the road wouldn't even be plowed open until near Memorial Day--sometimes later.
