Flooding closes I-25 north of Denver to the Wyoming line

New rounds of floods and flash floods are possible Friday in Colorado as rains continue to plague the area.

Interstate 25 was closed Friday morning between Colorado 7 north of Denver to the Wyoming border because of flooding and swollen rivers, the Colorado Department of Transportation reported.

Cory Lopez with KOA Radio says the interstate was closed because once you get off it, many of the roads in northern Colorado are impassable.

All roads south of Laramie and Cheyenne are closed, including I-25, because of not only the Colorado rains but flooding in the Laramie area. Colorado State University in Fort Collins is closed today and in Boulder, the University of Colorado campus is closed.

Lopez says the amount of rain received would be equivalent to thirteen feet of snow if the same thing had happened a few months from now.
