Heavy, wet spring snow has caused traffic delays across the Front Range and especially in the high country.
There are numerous road closures as a result of the inclement weather. More than 100 CDOT plows are on the streets, 22 of them are clearing the I-70 corridor.
Hydroplaning and freezing are the top concerns as CDOT battles the snowstorm across Colorado. In the metro area, roads could freeze this evening as temperatures drop between 7 and 9 PM.
I-25 at Monument Hill could be one of the worst areas in the metro area due to its elevation, and CDOT advised on a Thursday afternoon conference call that they may preemptively close the road if needed.
Along the I-70 corridor snow is falling at a rate of one inch per hour, making for extremely dangerous conditions and low visibility. Chain laws are in effect.
Before hitting the state highways, call 511 or visit cotrip.org to check conditions.
