There have been several crashes on Colorado’s roads Thursday morning after an overnight snowstorm dumped as much as 11 inches in some areas. While there was not a lot of accumulation in Denver, getting into the city has been challenging.
The Colorado Department of Transportation has 315 plows out treating roads. Snow remains on some highways, but most roads in the metro area are just slick.
The worst of the traffic is on Interstate 25. The northbound lanes of the highway have seen several crashes between I-25 and Interstate 70. At one point, there were a handful of crashes on I-25, all near the University of Denver.
There are also more crashes on the southbound side of I-25, with lanes blocked near Arapahoe Road.
A crash is blocking lanes on Interstate-76 between 88th and 96th avenues.
Essentially every road that ventures into the mountains had traction laws in effect Thursday morning.
Since midnight, DPD has received 20 traffic crash reports. Take is slow out there, #Denver. On the bright side, we haven’t had a single reported stolen puffer! #BetterLateThanNever #StaySafe pic.twitter.com/jRwIiVWNjx

All areas of Larimer County are blanketed with snow. We are seeing patchy dense fog in areas. The road conditions vary with snow, ice and slush. Please give yourself extra time this morning, slow your speeds, increase following distance and always wear your seatbelt @ColoradoDOT
