Are they still tearing up Highway 287 between Limon and the Oklahoma border? When I came through the area in August of '07 they had the road down to one lane with traffic stoppages south of Lamar, and just outside Boise City, Oklahoma.

I heard there are a lot of stoppages south of Lamar as well now. So in no time, you've got a bunch of semis lined up. I can't attest to what's out that way or on into Oklahoma or northwest into Limon.

We were with people in Denver this weekend that came from the Lamar area up through Eads, Kit Carson, Limon on into Denver and heard no complaints of it.

Yeah I just checked randmcnally.com and 287 is being reconstructed south of Lamar. There's a 13 mile stretch of what I'm presuming is one-lane road. Other than that it's clean from Dallas/Fort Worth all the way to Limon. We're coming up for Turkey Day at the in-laws' house in Brush. Pray for no snow. 3 kids and an edgy wife in a mini-van is enough without wintry conditions.

I hear that. I do believe it's one-lane, perhaps until you get up to Limon, but then you'll be going up another county road or Hwy.

As far as praying for no snow, how about we just pray for snow now and hope it melts by the 26th and 27th?

At least melt off the roads. The kids would enjoy a good snowstorm because all we get down here usually is ice.

Well we made it up there and back. Left in the pre-dawn hours last Saturday (2am CST) and the roads were fine the whole way up. There was a small 200 yard or so section of one-lane road outside Lamar but the construction crews weren't working so there were only 2 sentries on-site.

We came back yesterday morning and CO 71 was snowpacked from about 20 miles north of Limon down to I-70. Rather than take our chances on 287 we took I-70 to I-135 and down.

Good to see you made it safely. We had a weird little storm yesterday that seemed to affect the Palmer Divide area the most. Not much in the southern section of the Front Range, that is south of the mid-section of Colorado Springs. Pueblo West and the Wet Mountains got a sprinkle, but Monument Hill got pounded. Weird storm.
