Weather forecasters issued a winter weather travel alert Thursday morning and urged people to only venture out into snowy, slushy roads if it is essential.

Car crashes have been a problem in the Denver metro area under the treacherous driving conditions. All lanes of northbound Interstate 25 were closed north of E-470 just before 8:30 a.m., said the Colorado Department of Transportation.

If people have to drive they should plan for considerable delays due to the weather, the National Weather Service in Boulde reported.

Between 2 to 4 inches of snow will accumulate Thursday in Denver, the NWS said.

Delaying travel for a few hours will allow snow plows and the sun to improve road conditions, weather forecasters said.

Numerous car crashes have hampered driving across the Denver metro area.

The right lane of southbound Interstate 25 between 136th and 120th avenues was closed at around 6:30 a.m. following a car crash, but later reopened, CDOT said.

Northbound I-25 has been reopened after the left lanes of the highway between Lincoln Street and Santa Fe Drive were closed following a crash, CDOT said.
