CDOT plow gets stuck on Hwy. 82

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

BASALT ” You know it’s deep when even the Colorado Department of Transportation’s plows get stuck.

A combination plow and sander dumptruck slid into the center median on Highway 82 at Lazy Glen, upvalley of Basalt, on Thursday afternoon. Traffic, which was already slow because of slick roads and occasional blizzard conditions, crawled past the site because one westbound lane was closed.

The stuck truck was affecting traffic at 3:30 p.m. and into the evening commute. Two other plow drivers responded to the area at around 4 p.m. to devise with a strategy for pulling out their colleague, and they worked into the evening to execute their plan.
