Significant portions of Interstate 70 and Interstate 25 have been closed in the wake of Wednesday’s blizzard.
Accidents continue to cause traffic problems in areas all over Colorado.
The Colorado Department of Transportation has lifted an unprecedented traction law that was issued for all major metro interstates and highways because of the blizzard.
For much of the day Wednesday, all passenger vehicles, trucks and SUVs were required to have chains, snow tires or four-wheel drive while traveling on Interstates 25, 225, 76 and 270; C-470; U.S. 36; and Highway 83.
Normally, the traction laws are implemented on mountain highways. It’s the first time it had been implemented in the metro area, but with heavy snow quickly piling up, CDOT implemented it.
