Icy roads were being blamed for multiple crashes in the Denver area metro area on Thursday morning.

Denver Police closed eastbound I-70 from Federal Blvd to Pecos St. due to multiple accidents and road conditions just before 6 a.m. The highway reopened at 7:20 a.m., but delays lasted much longer.

A rollover on southbound I-25 at Hampden also caused long delays Thursday morning.

All lanes were cleared on I-25 at about 8:30 a.m.

A multi-vehicle accident blocked the ramp from northbound I-25 to northbound I-225 at 6 a.m.

In addition to the ice, Denver7 traffic reporter Jayson Luber warned drivers to be careful not to hit the chunks of ice created when Wednesday's snow froze overnight.

Denver International Airport warned that there may be closures on Pena Boulevard Thursday to remove stranded vehicles.

Several interstates and highways across Colorado remained closed Thursday. See the list here.
