Some highways remain closed in southwest Kansas due to heavy snowfall. Crews are out working to move stranded vehicles to clear the highways. We urge motorists to stay home if possible; road conditions are still snow-packed and icy and motorists continue to get stranded.

K-23 remains closed south of Meade to the Oklahoma line.

K-25 remains closed north of Ulysses through Lakin to Leoti.

Crews are prioritizing major routes for snow removal. Currently, there is no estimated time when all highways will reopen.
