Craig briefs: Many state offices close

In observance of Labor Day, many state offices will be closed today.

State driver’s license offices, the Department of Public Health and Environment’s vital records office and executive branch departments will be among the closed facilities.

All of Colorado’s state parks will be open and staffed, but Colorado Parks and Wildlife administrative offices and wildlife service centers will be closed. State troopers will be patrolling the highways and Department of Transportation maintenance crews will be working as necessary.
