The West Fork Fire Complex, Friday 6/28/13. via Inciweb

The Colorado Department of Transportation is set to re-open US Highway 160 through Wolf Creek Pass Saturday morning at 6 AM. The route’s been closed for over a week due to the West Fork Complex, a series of fires burning in the region. The decision comes after multiple agencies determined the reopening could happen, barring any major change in fire behavior. Motorists are encouraged to check the Colorado Department of Transportation’s site before traveling due to possible changes in fire conditions. The West Fork Complex has burned more than 90,000 acres.
