I-25 greenland exit

The Colorado Department of Transportation sent a message to motorists urging them not travel in specific areas during the storm that is expected from Sunday to Monday.

CDOT said motorists should avoid impacted areas especially the I-70 Mountain Corridor and I-25 between Monument and Castle Rock.

CDOT even says emergency closures throughout the gap could happen depending on the severity of the conditions for the safety of motorists.

The speed limit will be lowered to 45 mph in the gap to slow traffic down during the storm. Avoid driving through this area if you can on Monday morning. 

Drivers started experiencing icy conditions on I-25 as early as Sunday morning, in which there were multiple crashes reported on I-25 north of Colorado Springs.
