Drive from Pine Junction to DIA just now was decent. Just under 2 hours.
Roads were snowy and icy up the hill then got more and more clear until it was just wet near the airport.

5:45 a.m. 285 NB from Twin Forks to town is snow packed/covered, but didn't seem to slick so if you have good tires you should be fine. I went 30-35 mph through the canyon without any troubles. Will get slower as more people get on the road.

285 plowed but ice under the snow. Take it easy.

Shadow Mtn to Golden
Shadow Mtn and mist of Aspen Park not plowed. Grader was chaining up by JJ Madwells. 285 snow packed with only right lane down to hard pack. 4 CDOT plows getting on NB 285 from HWY 8 when I went by. SB before Parmalle semi with Trooper stuck right lane. 470 show packed to hard pack.

Remember with the return Tabor not passing last November ever County section got their budget severely cut. For Road and Bridge, less OT for night and weekend plowing and less product on the road.

Just drove from downtown Denver to bailey. 285 snow packed and some icy parts went about 40-45 mph a few cars passed me. Be careful because it looks like 285 is only plowed by one lane. If you live off 43 it’s literally just piled with snowed and icy. If your going into Denver c470 and 6th were terrible. Icy and snow packed.

Roads are dry from Bailey to C470. However watch the big patch of BLACK ICE under the bridge at Parmelee. Blowing drifting snow on c470 on ramp and bowls on ramp.

Snowpacked and some icy spots on 285, 30mph on curves, of course some ppl trying to do normal speeds.. right lane had better lane recognition. Ice and snowpack by c470

I did the speed limit mostly on NTC just slow on curves definitely

Greg D. 31min
Zambonis were out on Shadow Mountain last night.

Alex H. 49min
As of last night there were dropping lots of gravel on N. Turkey and it was in decent shape! The highway is typical this morning. Take your time and you will be fine as it is a bit slick.
