DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation urged drivers to avoid traveling in Denver, along the Front Range, in the foothills and eastern Plains due to treacherous road conditions.

CDOT says plows are making multiple passes on the interstates and major routes.

The storm is causing hazardous driving conditions across the state and every mountain pass. Chain and passenger traction laws are in place across the state, particularly on the Interstate 70 mountain corridor, according to CDOT.

I-70 was closed in both directions from east of Denver to Burlington. I-76 was closed from Lochbuie to Sterling. Both have since reopened.

A Commercial Motor Vehicle chain law is in effect on I-25 between Monument and Lincoln Avenue in Lone Tree.

Several other roads are closed in northeastern Colorado. You can find the latest information on road closures and conditions here.

CDOT has canceled the Bustang service for Tuesday.
