EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. - The Colorado Department of Transportation ordered high profile vehicles off of I-25 between Monument Hill and New Mexico Monday because of dangerous wind gusts.
Several semi-trucks were blown over in the Colorado Springs area.
The order applied to semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, buses, and other high profile vehicles.
Colorado Springs' Mountain Metro Transit suspended service as did several area school districts because of the high winds and the CDOT order.
As of 7:45 p.m., officials have lifted the high wind restriction on I-25 from Monument to New Mexico.
