Road Closures Hitting Denver Metro Area

I-70 Out East Closed Early Friday Morning

Snowpacked and blizzard-like conditions are making travel difficult on some Colorado roads, especially out east.

Here is an updated list of the current road closures, as of 10:50 a.m.

  • Hwy 119 Boulder Canyon closed again west of Boulder due to jackknifed semi and multiple accidents.
  • Eastbound I-70 from Airpark Road east of Denver to Limon and westbound I-70 from Burlington to Airpark Road
  • US 36 from I-70 at Byers to Last Chance at Hwy 71
  • Hwy 71 from Last Chance through Limon to Ordway
  • Northbound US 287 from Eads to Kit Carson
  • US 40 from Kit Carson to Limon
  • US 24 from Falcon east of Colorado Springs to Limon
  • Hwy 86 from Kiowa to I-70

The Colorado Department of Transportation said roads across the entire Front Range, southwest Colorado and the central mountains are icy and snow packed and high winds are making travel and snow removal difficult.

Plow crews say as they make a pass on the highway, the lane is quickly covered due to the steady snow and winds.
