Motorists should be prepared for freezing drizzle during this evening's commute

February 9, 2018 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1
 
DENVER — Freezing drizzle will likely impact the Denver metro area during tonight's evening commute with up to a 0.05" glaze possible. Motorists should be prepared for slick conditions as a result. Areas in the metro area that could be affected include: Interstate 25 north, I-76, and I-70 east towards the eastern plains.
 
The Colorado Department of Transportation encourages motorists to drive slow for the conditions and leave plenty of space in between vehicles to allow for a safe stopping distance. 

CDOT will have over 100 plows out in the metro area applying deicing products until the storm system is out of the area. Motorists are reminded to avoid passing plows on the right for their safety and for the safety of the plow operator.

STAY INFORMED: Road and weather conditions are available by dialing 511, 303-639-1111, or visiting www.cotrip.org. Available on the COtrip site are:

The traveling public may also visit the CDOT website at www.codot.gov; sign up for GovDelivery alerts; and follow CDOT on Twitter and Facebook (though the latter may not provide the most up-to-date news and conditions).
