Most major highways have reopened after the blizzard that hit Colorado Wednesday.

Drivers trying to travel between Golden and Boulder are still dealing with road closures.

A six-mile stretch of Highway 93 remains closed between Golden and Boulder, specifically, between 64th Ave and 72nd Ave due to a downed power line.

Most other highways are now clear.

A 150+-mile stretch of Interstate 70 from Aurora to Burlington reopened Thursday. Westbound reopened around 6:30 a.m., eastbound reopened at 9:30 a.m.

Several roads reopened Thursday morning including I-76 from Denver to Nebraska. However, some roads that opened this morning, have closed again, so check the latest road closures from CDOT here and Denver7 traffic reporter Jayson Luber here.
