Driving conditions in the I-25 gap between Castle Rock and Monument are still icy, slow, and dangerous if you're driving too fast.

Denver saw 8 to 10 inches overnight, and Monument saw around 3 to 4 inches.

Driving conditions in the gap between Castle Rock and Monument are very slick, but road crews have been delayed clearing the southbound lanes.
