COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Southbound Interstate 25 is closed between Castle Rock and Monument after blizzard conditions led to multiple crashes, according to the Colorado State Patrol.
The southbound lanes are closed at Plum Creek Parkway.
There’s no word on when the interstate will reopen. The area is under a blizzard warning until midnight.
A live look at northbound Interstate 25 in Monument:
Thursday afternoon, we’ll see the snow come in bursts along with strong wind gusts into the 50s. This will create blowing snow and blizzard conditions for some.
Tonight, snow continues over the Palmer Divide, Teller County and the mountains southwest of Pueblo. It’ll stay quite windy out of the north through midnight and then begin to calm down some. As the wind switches around out of the east by morning, we may actually get a few snow showers to develop between Colorado Springs and Pueblo.
