CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (KDVR) — Interstate 25 was closed in both directions between Castle Rock and Colorado Springs Thursday afternoon due to multiple crashes and blizzard conditions.
The closure was in place between Plum Creek Parkway (Exit 181) and Baptist Road in north Colorado Springs.
The interstate reopened about 6:30 p.m., the Colorado State Patrol said.
Earlier Thursday, the Colorado Department of Transportation said the crashes were caused by people driving too fast and bald tires, among other things.
“Avoid driving this stretch of I-25 tonight through tomorrow morning due to blizzard with gusts of over 60 miles-per-hour,” CDOT said in a statement.
CDOT crews are continuing to clear the snow from the roads.
