I-70 reopens between Frisco and Vail after 4-hour closure for avalanche mitigation

FRISCO — Some Interstate 70 travelers were frustrated Thursday about roadway closures caused by winter maintenance work between Frisco and Vail.

Early Thursday, the Colorado Department of Transportation announced that it would be closing I-70 in both directions between Frisco and Vail Pass at about 11 a.m. for winter maintenance operations ahead of the Presidents Day weekend. CDOT later tweeted that the interstate would close at noon and asked drivers to prepare for a closure that could last through the early afternoon.

After nearly four hours, the lanes reopened at about 4 p.m. CDOT reported the department conducted successful avalanche mitigation work on 13 slide paths in the Officer’s Gulch area.
