I-70 through Colorado's mountains is closed in multiple locations
Interstate 70 through Colorado's mountains is closed in multiple locations for avalanche control work as a winter storm brings heavy snow to the Rockies.
The Colorado Department of Transportation warned travelers to stay home until the work is done Friday to avoid having to stop and wait for several hours whenever road crews need to trigger slides to try to keep the highway safe.
In Wyoming, road closures caused by natural avalanches and avalanche control work delayed the opening of schools in the Jackson area.
Heavy snow is expected to continue in Colorado's central and northern mountains and in Wyoming's southern mountains through Saturday.
