Slick conditions for evening commute along I-25

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Drivers should expect slick conditions for the Monday evening commute, particularly on the Interstate 25 Gap between Colorado Springs and Denver. Although widespread snow will not be here for all during the commute hours, earlier in the day freezing drizzle brought widespread icy conditions… keep that in mind as you hit the roads!

Snow is falling along portions of the I-25 corridor and will continue through the evening.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is urging Denver-area commuters to leave work early, before rush hour. CDOT said the worst of the storm is expected to hit the I-25 Gap between 5 and 6 p.m.
