Extreme winds in southern Colorado Monday prompted the closures of the El Paso County Courthouse and Cheyenne Mountain State Park.  The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) also placed restrictions on high profile commercial vehicles on El Paso County roads.  The department also barred the vehicles, including semi- and tractor- trailers, from Interstate 25 between Monument and the New Mexico state line after multiple rollover accidents.  This restriction was lifted around 7:40 Monday evening.
