Colorado reopening more highways

DENVER — More highways in northern Colorado that were cut off because of destructive flooding last week are being reopened, helping reduce the number of people in need of emergency shelters and, transportation officials hope, reducing traffic congestion in heavily populated areas along the Front Range.

‘‘I think for a lot of people it’s not returning to normal, per se, but it’s starting to get there with some of these roads being reopened,’’ said Amy Ford, a spokeswoman with the state Department of Transportation.
