6:31 am
road, weld county road 16, this is where it is closed off, and also closed off on the south side at the frederick exit aa mile marker, i believe 253. so if you're headed in this area, try to preplan, because traffic is starting to be a problem out here. guys. as you saw from that air tracker shot, getting a little bit congested. southbound side at 235 where the frederic so it's the southbound side that's going to be maybe affected. now it's not too bad. i'm not calling for an alternate, at least on i-25 at this point. other big problem is southeast denver with the southbound side of monaco closed down a little bit after leetsdale near mississippi for a rollover crash. you can see from the camera we have set up, that truck is on its side and will take some time to get cleared up. we don't have tow trucks just

6:35 am
rtd blaming it on a power line issue that delayed the train seven hours. you see the sign here, trains not running. they had to divert some passengers to buses and try to get them out. rtd says a majority of their rides are stilllon time. but we asked, why don't you shut it down, try to get testing down? take a listen to what a spokesperson had to say. >> if you look number of trips we've made and the thousands versus the delays we've had, they are a tiny fraction. but it's still not acceptable. we are not at the level we consider to be acceptable. >> reporter: rtd does say they are running close to 90% on time, which is a good number, unless you're that 10% trying to make it to the airport, trying to make it to work and things like. they blame these problems on isolated incidents, though they
