Highways that were forced to close down as a result of the icy conditions include Interstate 70, Interstate 25, and U.S. 285. All three roads saw multiple-car crashes, with any injury resulting from the crashes going unreported thus far. The Colorado State Patrol has issued a state-wide warning about driving in the conditions, while the Colorado Department of Transportation has commenced clean-up efforts to clear the road of not only the cars, but the ice itself.
