Road closures on east side of Rocky Mountain National Park

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. - Due to heavy snowfall and deteriorating road conditions on the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park, Trail Ridge Road is closed at Deer Ridge Junction.  

A winter storm warning is now in effect throughout Rocky Mountain National Park until midnight.  

With lower area winds at 25 to 30 mph and higher areas at around 60 mph, visibility is becoming difficult. Previous snow has melted, causing roads to be icy.  

Crews expect to close Bear Lake Road later Wednesday afternoon.
