Accidents involving jackknifed semi-trucks are causing delays on some roadways. Southbound Powers Boulevard at Fontaine Boulevard is shut down after a crash involving 10 cars and a jackknifed semi-truck. It is expected to reopen in a couple of hours. Update: It is now reopened.

Northbound I-25 is closed between Redrock Road and Butte Road because a jackknifed semi-truck is blocking all the lanes. The Colorado Department of Transportation has a detour in place but if you are already near and headed north, expect major delays. Update: It is now reopened.
