COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Highway 285 is closed between Antero Junction and Grant Friday morning due to blowing snow and multiple blown-over semis, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

The highway has been closed since around 4:30 a.m. Friday. There’s no word on when it will reopen.

Crews are working to remove three-foot snowdrifts from the highway south of Fairplay. CDOT said strong winds and blowing snow are causing low visibility, and multiple semis have blown over.

Several highways in eastern Colorado, including Interstate 70, are also closed due to poor visibility and adverse conditions. Visit cotrip.org for the latest closure information.
