8:15 pm: Just traveled up from Littleton to Conifer (C470 to 285 to Barkley). Roads were just wet at this time. Very foggy out there. Just like normal, if you drive according to conditions all should be fine. Later tonight/tomorrow am might be a different story however.

I saw all theses post saying it’s an icy mess, I never hit an icy spot it’s just wet

So update: from I-25 east, roads are mostly dry, no ice and barely any moisture (we took I-70 to I-76 to 270 back to I-70 and then Peña). Except a mile from the airport. Wet again.

West of I-25 roads become increasingly wet, with 470 & 285 being the worst. The side roads and decks/walkways up the hill are what are already icy, but 470 & 285 have a good chance of being ice in the morning.

Please be careful coming down 285 in to Denver this morning. Do not be fooled by the dry pavement because when you hit the canyon it is slicker than bats***. Especially when you go under Parmalee Gulch Road where there is the first big patch of ice that will get you if you are not looking for it.

285 clear from Shaffers Crossing to 470. Road is a little wet. Some slick spots through the canyon. Only patchy fog going up Richmond Hill.

Mike Allen 5:05am
Very slick in many areas! Drive slow!!

Jessie Fusaro 5:50am
I drove from top of conifer mountain all the way down to Colfax and Delaware.
Very icy through the canyon.
Mainly wet on C470 and I70.
6th Avenue was icy on bridges and over passes.
Just take it slow and steady. You should be fine. No fog but I leave my house at 3 am.

Just arrived in Cherry Creek from Richmond Hill Rd. It was not good. Already one accident near Parmalee Gulch. One, maybe 2 vehicles involved. Also evidence of a skid into the guardrail just after Parmalee. If you don’t need to travel, stay home and wait for the temps to warm up.

Katie Popp 6:14am
WARNING: 6AM south Turkey creek and deer creek canyon are slicker than snot.

Andi Ryan 6:20am
N Turkey was sanded but icy spots. Ppl were doing good using caution NB at Parmalee Gulch. And a plow truck was going SB spraying maybe?

Lindee Bly Nolan 6:35am
I drove 73 from blue creek to the high school at 5:45am and it was good.

One truck already went sideways right before the canyon a little before where S Turkey Creek comes out onto 285 - watch all the areas from Windy Point down where the road is usually wet - I think there are springs near those sections and they frequently have some ice. Everyone be safe out there this morning!

Just went through the canyon at 6:50 a m. Seems like it's mostly just wet now, plows went through earlier.

Elizabeth Braddock 7:00am
With all the ice reports on 285, we opted to take 73 to 74 and get on 470 at Morrison. It took a bit longer, but was clear and dry. Bonus for the beautiful scenery and heard of elk!

Car in the median at Windy Point

285 is snow packed. Not too slick if you have good tires and 4wd, but definitely go slow. I'm sure more accidents will occur as traffic increases. Plows were out.

Shantelle C Stephens 6:07am
Just came down the canyon, people sliding saw commercial vehicles fish tailing. Lots of folks pulling over. Plows out. Pretty dicey until we reached 470 toll road. Peña is decent. Be safe neighbors!

Katie Sidesinger 5:48am
A bit slick and no plows out going on 73/74 or 70 but there were some going westbound once I got into Denver. Way slicker up the hill. Denver is mostly just slush and melted snow. I went 40-50 AWD and was fine.

Gina Cannan 5:43am
Gina Cannan Not too terrible but slick. On the CV currently and the bus driver is going a pretty good speed but I'm seeing other cars slide a bit.

Mike Neil 5:40am
It snowed all the way to the airport. As usual, slow and steady works. 285 is slick in the canyon. About typical.

Christina Grobarcik Wolf 5:38am
285 by Richmond hill slick as heck. Be very careful. Getting bad.

just went thru the roads were just fine

Here's how it looks at this moment on Hwy 285 0.6mi N of N Turkey Creek Rd (Looking NB) - CDOT

My husband left at 6am from pine junction. Roads were drivable at 40mph all the way till he passed 470. Then it was a mess and a total stand still. He just now got off at Sheridan (at 7:25am). And headed north.
Side note......there was a car going south bound on the northbound side and almost hit my husband head on. It was right by Staunton (they didn’t just cross the lines, they were on the other side of the cables that divide the HWY!!) be safe out there everyone.
