Drove down from Bailey to Denver, roads are a bit slick, snow packed. From Bailey to Conifer averaged 40 mph, Conifer to 470 averaged 45 mph. Denver roads are worse than 285 Hwy. no issues. Just slow down & be mindful. Happy Tuesday All

Just came down from the top of Conifer Mountain (Kennedy Gulch exit). Kennedy/Conifer Mountain drive was plowed, snow packed and icy in spots. 285 is snow packed and icy. It’s really icy through Aspen Park. Windy point wasn’t too bad... snow packed with packed snow underneath. Coming into Turkey Creek area was slick and icy. The canyon... Oh the infamous canyon... it’s plowed with icy snowpack all over it. Both sides were open when I came down. I saw one box truck get stuck on the UPHILL (Southbound), but traffic is moving both directions. I saw plows all over 285 and even on Conifer Mountain! Lakewood is a disaster... No plowing and A LOT of people out that shouldn’t be. I have done a lot of dodging crazy people down here. Take it slow and steady... Remember 4wd doesn’t mean 4 she’ll stop!

Just drove home from a busy ER night shift ....
I70 is HORRIBLE! 470 is drivable (I went 40mph). Going up 285 was sketchy. Lots of vehicles (and even a big truck) blocking lanes. Snowpacked. Slushy and slippery.
In my neighborhood off Foxton, the plow truck is off the road and stuck.
Happy Tuesday. Good night.

Drove up 43 to Aspen Park. Some snow, some slush, some wet but really no big deal. Traffic flowing slower than normal. Only took a few minutes extra.

6:30am: 285 NB drastically improves after Windy Point — turns to rain/ slush at 470. Top up on windshield fluid

Update; made it to Loveland. Far right lane on North bound 285 was not plowed well, if at all. Left lane was clear, but lane transitions dicey. 470 E was slow with lots of lane slush, evidence of a prior accident just before I-70. Pretty much just wet the rest of the way. I went slower than the speed limit until I hit I-70 at about Wadsworth.

Ryan P. 1hr
The roads aren't too bad. Just alittle snowy. I went the speed limit almost the whole way

Starting to ice up be careful on 43 it's pretty slickery

*Note from cosmiccowboy55: accidents at CR 43 and Hangman (2 cars), CR 43 and Shelton (one car slide off). No injuries in either

My drive from conifer to bailey (43) between 2-2:30- Started snowing in conifer but roads were mostly dry and getting wet. Snow started sticking to roads and super slick at park county line in pine and then just wet again until loaf n jug. Roads wet past there until elementary school (cr 43), slick and sticking to roads but they were actually putting dirt on the road! My guess is it will be getting slick as the temps drop and sun goes down.
P.S. please turn your headlight on! 80% of my fellow drivers did not have their lights on as it was snowing. BE SAFE!!
