I-76 closed from Nebraska line to Denver


The looming winter storm is already forcing road closures to our west.


According to a news release from the Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT), Colorado officials have closed the Interstate 76 corridor from the Nebraska/Colorado line to Denver. Officials say heavy, accumulating snow and slick roads have caused dangerous travel conditions.


NDOT has closed I-76 at the I-76 and I-80 junction at Big Springs for westbound travel.


NDOT warns that travel conditions are expected to continue to decline in the State, especially in rural areas where blowing snow could cause more issues with roadways.
