Denver road conditions: Slippery in spots amid frigid temps

Roads were icy in spots amid frigid temperatures across the Denver metro region Sunday, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation, which urged drivers to be prepared for rapidly changing conditions.

Denver police responded to a multiple vehicle crash on Interstate 25 northbound just south of Santa Fe Drive that shut down the interstate for about at least 30 minutes Sunday. That crash was cleared by 9 a.m. and no one was hurt.

A couple additional crashes were reported Sunday on I-25 to the south of Colorado Springs, including one that involved a snow plow near Exit 122. That crash blocked one lane.

No problems were reported on I-70, and traffic into the mountains seemed to be flowing smoothly Sunday morning. The passenger vehicle traction law is in effect in the mountains.
