DENVER — If you’ve ever thought your GPS system in your car or on your phone was misleading you about road closures, you may have been right all along.

Case in point: Independence Pass (also known as CO 82). Last week, if you would have tried to take CO 82, your Apple, TomTom and Google maps systems would have shown that the road was closed.

The closure was originally attributed to a mudslide on the road. However, the reality is that there was no mudslide and the road was not closed to traffic.

Denver7 has obtained dozens of emails from Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) employees about the misinformation to find out who made the decision to deceive the public and why.
