It was slow driving in Pueblo today, like many other areas of Southern Colorado.
CDOT had about 80 different trucks out in the region.
They will work till all main roads are clear and the storm is over.
Drivers tell us, even if they're running late, they try to stay safe.
"I drive a lot slower," said Manuel Encina, a Pueblo resident. "I stay at least an extra ten feet away from the next truck cause it's ten miles an hour, and if I see anything suspicious I just slow down."
"Don't follow close," said Leonard McReynolds, a Rye resident in Pueblo. "Drive slow with four wheel drive. A lot of two wheel drive vehicles are crashing."
Keep in mind, the blowing snow and low visibility mean you may not be able to tell if you are coming up on something or veering into another lane.
You should also make sure you have an emergency kit in your car packed with things like food, water, and blankets, so you will have what you need in case you get stuck or your car breaks down.
