POSTED: 01:38 PM MST Dec 19, 2012    UPDATED: 10:37 AM MST Dec 20, 2012 

The following roads are closed as of 6:45 p.m. Wednesday due to adverse conditions:

CDOT crews statewide remain on full snow shift across the entire state. Motorists should expect a combination of wet/slushy conditions and  icy/snow packed conditions. Crews will stay on snow shift through at least tomorrow morning, specifically focusing on the icy spots.  Motorists should still allow for extra travel time. 

Below is a update on specific regions of the state from CDOT:

Front Range (I-25 border to border): Mainly seeing wet and slushy roads with some snow pack and icy spots. As temperatures drop, icy spots are expected especially on bridges, overpasses and ramps.

I-70 Corridor and high country: A slight improvement, but motorists should still expect icy and snow packed conditions.

Eastern Plains: This is the trouble spot in the state right now due to high winds, blowing snow and poor visibility.
