Signal malfunction snarls Fraser traffic

On Thursday morning Feb. 12, the stoplight at one of the busiest intersections in Grand County malfunctioned. For the next two days, it blinked yellow. Without the control of the light, drivers on U.S. Highway 40, turning onto County Road 804 to Safeway or to the Alco Shopping Center had to resort to politeness and common sense to keep moving. The light is designed to flash yellow in the middle of the night, then return to its regular red, yellow and green cycle at 7 a.m., Fraser-Winter Park Police Chief Glen Trainor told the Winter Park Town Council Tuesday morning. Once the light malfunctioned, calls began flooding into the police department. “People coming out of Safeway and Alco were having the hardest time,” Trainor said. A Colorado Department of Transportation repairman drove over from Craig on Friday to fix the light, Trainor said. “He got here at lunchtime, but had to drive up to Rabbit Ears Pass to meet someone for the part he needed.” The light was fixed by Friday afternoon, just in time for heavy President’s Day weekend traffic.

Fraser woman struck by car in critical condition

A Fraser woman is in critical condition today after she was struck early this morning by a vehicle on U.S. Highway 40. Officials from the Fraser-Winter Park Police Department said the incident occurred around 2:38 a.m. near the entrance to Rendezvous Road between Fraser and Winter Park. Officers at the scene discovered the 25-year-old woman lying unconscious in the westbound lane. Authorities did not release the woman's name but indicated she is from Fraser. The female was transported to Middle Park Medical Center and was then airlifted to St. Anthony's Hospital in Lakewood for treatment of numerous injuries, according to police reports. The woman was still listed in critical condition as of late Monday morning. A 2005 Kia sedan traveling westbound on the highway struck the woman, according to police. Police said the female, who was wearing dark-colored clothing, suddenly walked in front of the vehicle. The driver of the Kia was a 24-year-old male from Tabernash, who immediately called 9-1-1 and remained at the scene. Neither drugs nor alcohol were believed to be a factor in the incident, though an investigation is ongoing. Providing assistance to the Fraser-Winter Park Police Department was East Grand Fire, Grand County EMS, Grand County Sheriff's Office and Granby Police.

Skateboarding: A note from the Fraser/Winter Park Police Department

With the snow gone and the public roadways open, we have seen quite an increase in people enjoying the sunshine and spring weather by riding skateboards and long boards. In the interest of the safety of the riders, and that of traffic in general, we would like to remind everyone of the following. Colorado Revised Statues 42-4-109 (9) states: No person shall use the highways for traveling on skis, toboggans, coasting sleds, skates of similar devices. It also is unlawful for any person upon roller skates and riding in or by means of any coaster, toy vehicle or similar device to go upon any roadway except while crossing a highway in a crosswalk, and when so crossing such persons shall be granted all the rights and shall be subject to all of the duties applicable to pedestrians. The subsection (9) does not apply to any public way which is set aside by proper authority as a play street and which is adequately roped off or otherwise marked for such purpose. Violation of this Statute could constitute fines, a court date of both. For purposes of definition by the Fraser/Winter Park Police Department, similar devices include but are not limited to skateboards and long boards. Additionally, Colorado Revised Statutes defines, “Highway” as the entire width between the boundary lines of every publicly maintained when any part of thereof is open to the use of the public for purposes of vehicular travel or the entire width of every way declared to be a public highway by any law of this state. In summary, the Fraser/Winter Park Police Department asks that people riding any of the above defined vehicles including skate boards, long boards ect. not ride them on the public roadways within Fraser and Winter Park and limit their use to sidewalks and appropriately marked trails.

Highway 9 improvement project gets under way

Phase one of the State Highway 9 safety project began on April 1, with the contractor beginning to mobilize equipment this week, a CDOT spokeswoman said. The first phase of the project, scheduled to last from April to November 2015, will entail culvert replacement and repair, highway realignment and the installation of four wildlife crossings from milepost 131 to 137 immediately south of Kremmling. There will be several nighttime closures during the project primarily for culvert work, said Tracy Trulove with CDOT. There are approximately 80 culverts along the 11-mile stretch of SH-9 that need work. There will be a 30-minute opening during nighttime closures that will generally begin around 2:30 a.m. to allow commuters to pass through, she said. CDOT will issue notices of night closures one to two weeks in advance, she said. When the road is open, motorists can expect up to 45-minute delays, which include the 35 mile per hour speed limit through the project area, Trulove said. "The engineers are really going to hold (the contractor) to 45 minutes total through the project," Trulove said. Additionally, the road will repaved before the winter 2015/2016 winter shutdown, Trulove said Phase two of the project is scheduled to begin in April 2016. That phase will include highway realignment and the installation of three wildlife crossings between mileposts 126 and 131. Currently, Kirkland Construction LLLP hopes to finish the project in November 2016, though it's possible construction could extend into 2017, Trulove said. The SH-9 safety improvements project will among other improvements add seven above and below grade wildlife crossings to reduce collisions along SH-9 south of Kremmling. The stretch of SH-9 between the Colorado River and Summit County is notorious for wildlife collisions. Between 2006 and 2009, the stretch of road saw 103 collisions between vehicles and wildlife, including three fatalities, according to CDOT data. The $39.2 million project is funded by a public-private partnership between CDOT, Grand County and Blue Valley Ranch.

UPDATED: Motocyclist dies after crash

11:29 a.m., July 3 — A motorcyclist involved in a crash on U.S. Highway 40 near the entrance to the Mary Jane ski area has died. Police said 56-year-old Michael Maner of Austin, Texas, passed away at St. Anthony's Hospital in Denver. Maner's motorcycle struck a car just before noon on Wednesday, July 2. He was airlifted to Denver with severe head injuries and was listed in critical condition on Wednesday afternoon. As of press time, no charges have been filed. Fraser-Winter Park Police Chief Glen Trainor said he expected a lengthy investigation as police still needed to interview witnesses and reconstruct the scene of the accident. "There's probably nothing pending imminently at this point," Trainor said. The Grand County Coroner's Office will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Drugs and/or alcohol were not believed to be a factor in the crash. No one else was injured in the crash, which shut down both lines of U.S. Highway 40 for about an hour. July 2 — One man is in critical condition at St. Anthony's Hospital after his motorcycle collided with a car in Winter Park. The accident was east of the Mary Jane ski area entrance on U.S. Highway 40 just before noon. "An initial investigation into the incident reveals that the driver of the motorcycle was attempting to pass a second vehicle that was in the process of turning left off of the highway," Fraser-Winter Park Police said in a press release. The motorcyclist, a 56-year-old Texas man, was airlifted to Denver with severe head injuries. Initial reports stated the man was wearing a helmet. The driver of the second vehicle, a 32-year-old Denver man, was uninjured, according to the press release. Emergency responders from East Grand Fire, Grand County EMS, Fraser-Winter Park Police Department, Colorado State Patrol and the Colorado Department of Transportation all responded to the incident. U.S. Highway 40 was closed in both directions for about an hour and was reopened around 2 p.m. The accident is still under investigation, and no charges have been filed.

Updated: Manhunt suspended, US 40 re-opened near Winter Park Resort

U.S. Highway 40 has re-opened and the search has been suspended for a male suspect that is at large somewhere in the area of Winter Park Resort. A man and woman fleeing Denver area police, and who are wanted in Jefferson County entered the Winter Park Resort area on US Highway 40 near Mary Jane on the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 14. Colorado State Patrol and the Fraser/Winter Park police tried to intercept the vehicle on Berthoud Pass, which resulted in a car chase. The suspects crashed their vehicle about half of a mile East of the entrance to Mary Jane and US Highway 40. Officers were able to ping the suspect's cell phone, but the ping responded somewhere in the Denver area, leading officials to believe the man did not have his cell phone with him. According to Grand County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Lt. Dan Mayer, the man and woman fled from their vehicle on foot near Mary Jane. Officials were able to apprehend the woman but the man is still at large in the Winter Park Resort area. Mayer said the couple was wanted for several crimes including identity theft and burglary. A section of US Highway 40 from the south entrance of Winter Park to the entrance of Mary Jane was closed while officials searched for the man who is now on foot. The Grand County Emergency Response Team and K9 Unit were called in, and were using infrared lights to search for the man. The search was suspended around 10:30 p.m. on Sept. 14. Mayer said the Fraser/Winter Park Police Department may continue patrolling the area throughout the night, and the situation will be reevaluated in the morning. This story will be updated as more information becomes available. Updated story: Fugitive in custody, more details of events on Thursday's manhunt
