The Colorado Department of Transportation hadn’t reported any major crashes or road closures due to the storm.

While traffic was mostly light for the morning, Denver Public Works had plows working to clear the roads.

DPW went on to advise drivers to plan ahead and give themselves extra time for their morning commutes.
