Colorado road conditions: Extreme driving conditions Thursday make commute treacherous

austria-corona

A winter storm barreled through last night, causing “extreme” travel conditions on some roads. More than a foot of snow fell in some areas around the metro area, with over eight inches falling downtown.

The Colorado Department of Transportation has 357 plows out across the state.

The city of Denver went on accident alert just after 10 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Colorado State Patrol warned that “if you have two wheel; or front-wheel drive you will not be able to pull the hills.” Colorado Highway 93 remains a very tough drive between Boulder and Golden.

Nearly all of the Interstate 70 corridor headed into the high country have traction laws in effect. Several trucks were without chains blocking I-70 near the Lookout exit last night.

There were reports all over the city of cars stuck on side streets. Even a snow plow at 26th Avenue and Steele Street got stuck.

A downed power pole on Sheridan Boulevard has it closed between 49th and 52nd avenues. That is in the area of north Denver between I-70 and Interstate 76.
