Just FYI if you are heading down North Turkey Creek towards 285 this morning. Just last the last houses...HUGE rocks slide down onto the other mane nearest the mountain. Jeffco Police there warning people. Not sure how they'll get them off the road...they are pretty big.

It’s being cleared. There are flaggers controlling traffic, but road is now clear.

Good morning roads are mostly just wet this morning 43 has a few spots that were cold enough to collect some snow mostly west of the straight away 73 has the same deal small areas of slickness snowing pretty good in Evergreen so conditions will probably change 285 is dry

285 coming northbound into Conifer is deceptive- very icy!! Drive safe, fellow travelers.

Driving from Bailey to the city, roads have areas of thin layers of ice. It is deceptively slick, roads are untreated and unsanded. Drive slower than you think you need to, you won't be sorry.

North Turkey Creek is a fun game of which tires are gonna lose traction where? No sanding yet but you can tell where the ice patches are because they are a little milkier in color

Jefferson to Denver a couple of hours ago. Just typical winter driving conditions, watch your speed and you will be fine

Doug A. 8:33am
Just took kids to school. Bad spot looks to be Richmond Hill Rd to Safeway exit. Very slick in spots

Robin H. 8:23am
Yes very icy on 285 especially from Richmond Hill to Conifer. I have a vehicle built for bad weather and snow with great tires and my traction control was working overtime that whole stretch. Cars were sliding all around me.

285 between Conifer and N Turkey creek slick in spots. Traffic was moving about 40 mph so people were actually slowing down for the road conditions. 73 near the HS and other roads in Conifer were much worse with 73 being a sheet of ice near Barclay Rd intersection and HS. Crews are out in places putting down sand mix but didn’t appear to be hitting 73 at all yet. I have a Ford Explorer with new tires and was sliding around in the snow/ice mode of AWD

I noticed that driving back from the HS around 7:45. It was worse then that at 7:00 when we left.

Roads are CRAZY BAD. STAY HOME. We are on good tires, 4 wheel drive and sliding like nuts.
Our dog training Classes are canceled today..

Clif B. 5:57am
Good morning all 43 is mostly snowpacked 285 looks just wet however I did get a little slippage on the hill going up to pine junction so there are spots of ice 73 is mostly just wet once again there are some spots that will demand your attention. Have a great day !

Casey A. 6:13am

Good morning all, 43 is snowpacked and unplowed 285 has been plowed but no lane recognition and they drop some sand going down to Shaffers crossing 73 has been plowed however its narrow in the narrows with no road shoulder visible so if you meet oncoming traffic be careful. On a lighter side if you take a deep breath and can take your eyes off the road for a split second it sure is Purdy

Kristin S. 6:05am
Just went from conifer to Englewood; 6 am. Light traffic (what I was hoping for!). Took it slow and arrived safely. Normal slippery spots - windy pt and the canyon.

Stefanie E. 6:05am
Just drove down from Conifer to 470/70. 285 is snow packed, slushy and slick in places. Same for 470 and 70. Drive slow. Be safe.
