From fb 285 traveler page 15 mins ago:


“ 285 update Nb as of 7:20ish: dry from park county to conifer. Roads wet from king Soopers until the fire station. Then dry again rest of the way down. Saw several plows going SB in JeffCo so it looks like they’re ready!”

“ Just got back to Bailey from Denver. Some snow flying from about c470 until just after conifer, then nothing. Starting to stick, it was blowing pretty hard so visibility was hit and miss coming up but nothing to terrible. Be safe today everyone!”

“ Well, it's the perfect epitome of 285 early winter driving today.

From Kings Valley to Denver: Wide-ranging conditions. Everything from fluffy snow in KV, to snowy, to blowing snow, to wet and maybe a little slick, to dry, repeat.

Conditions will probably continue to change dramatically across the corridor so it's one of those days where the best advice is... Just don't get overly confident when that road looks dry because you're about a quarter mile away from possibly slick.

Stay safe!”

“ Traffic is starting to back up at Richmond Hill. We never slipped on the drive up. Snow started sticking around Windy Point. If you have good tires you should be fine. Scratch that. We were sitting at a dead stop at Richmond and tried to start up and we slid a little bit with snow tires. Getting progressively worse.”

“ Golden to KV - 1 hour 20 minutes- people really having trouble at Richmond Hill, virtually no lane recognition from Windy Point on heading up the hill. Traction laws are in effect. “

“ Update at 7:30 PM 470 to conifer very low visibility almost white out conditions. From King Soopers visibility gets better. Richmond Hill is awful 2wd cars no traction and very slick in spots. Please slow down. Average speed, 20 mph to Pine Junction.

Pine Junction to 43 Road Snow packed visibility good. Take it slow and you will get home.”

That was the last report of the night.

I sincerely hope everyone who’s traveling gets to their destination safely on this snowy evening.
Signing off.
