While it wasn't as powerful as it could have been, the snow and winds were enough to make a mess of the roadways.
I-70 remained closed throughout the night from Airpark Road to the Kansas border, but fully reopened just before 8:30 a.m. Thursday morning, according to CDOT.
CDOT initially tweeted at about 10:50 a.m. that I-76 had fully reopened Thursday morning after being closed from Lochbuie to the Nebraska state line on Wednesday afternoon due to the extreme weather conditions.
The department tweeted a correction at about 11:15 a.m. stating that a safety closure between Sterling and Nebraska remains in place due to the adverse weather conditions in Nebraska.
Our crews were out that way Thursday morning and it was clear why the roads had been closed. 9NEWS reporter Liz Kotalik was headed to Wiggins when she came across two men whose car was stranded. they had been stuck for about six hours after running into a ditch.
