Road closures on Wednesday evening

Wintry weather causes closures in eastern Colo.

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

  • I-70 closed from Limon to Kansas border.
  • SH 59 closed between Seibert and Kit Carson
  • US 287 Northbound from Eads (Milemarker 113-113)

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.
