You can expect wet and sloppy driving conditions on Hwy 285 in Turkey Creek Canyon and at Windy Point this morning. Leave a few minutes early, slow down and give plenty of space to emergency and road maintenance vehicles

Left the house at 0515, got to Golden at 0555. Shadow mountain and 285 were not plowed, icy, snow packed. About North turkey Creek it turned to just wet.

Less and less snow on the road the farther you get but a little dicey and slick through conifer

Andi R 40m
NTC slushy wet snow, wasn’t slick, nb 285 getting slushy, until the curves/ canyon then it’s wet. Standing water on 285 after Hwy 8, hydroplaning possible.. and trucks driving close to the lines are splashing slush on cars so be careful

Roads mostly wet with some slush. However there are areas with lots of standing water, watch your speed.

An oversized load was heading SB. They passed Safeway at 7:15am.

Skip it, icing under the snow, it’s a mess

Kristen E 2:08pm
Kings valley crossing: Conifer to pine Junction. Roads are getting bad, about 4 cars off the road already. Be safe out there today.

Amber M 2:01pm
I just drove from 43 to conifer High School and it took about 40 minutes.. lots of heavy snow, people doing less than 20mph and it’s still dumping heavy!

Kim B 1:58pm
Hubby just got home to Elk Creek Highlands - said roads were terrible and had trouble getting up hill past 43/47 split. We do not have 4WD, but do have studded tires that do really well in the snow.

Debbie F 1:45pm
I just drove from Conifer to Bailey about 20 minutes ago. Foggy all the way. Slushy starting at Pine Junction and coming into Bailey but I imagine that is probably true for the Conifer/Schaeffer's Crossing area now as well. Hydroplaning could also be an issue if you are going too fast.

Aimee P 1:45pm
I’m at conifer high school and it’s dumping snow, accumulating fast on side roads.

I just drove down from Pine Junction to Littleton. The roads were very wet and sloppy along the edges, but not icy.

Kassie G 3:33pm
Through conifer it’s wet and slushy, snowfall has picked up again.

Kate H 3:20pm
Just got home at Windy Point at 3:15pm. From C470 to Windy Point, only wet roads.

I am in a 2WD rental car right now and my husband called and said I better come home because roads were getting really bad. Got to the CDOT sign getting on 285 and it said that Passanger Traction Laws were in effect. Since my car didn’t meet the criteria, I pulled over at The Fort and my husband came and picked me up. From the time he got from Windy Point to The Fort, the roads completely cleared up.

Brianna E. 3:13pm
Drove 285 NB left around 2:15, got to Wadsworth around 3.
Went 20-40mph until I reached the exit for Tiny Town.
Red truck SB at Richmond Hill damaged, drive through area slow.
Saw about 4 cars off the road at Windy Point SB.
A state trooper was towing one guy out.
Roads were mostly slushy.
Around the Tiny Town exit they became just wet.
Currently in Lakewood, it's misting rain.
Also, some standing water in the canyon and until you hit 470. Be careful of speeds. A truck passed me and splashed my entire windshield with water.
Drive safe! Turn on your lights! And anyone leaving the mountains to head down, please clear off all your windows of snow!
