Summit County Roads & Weather: Loveland Pass closed due to adverse weather


4: 50 p.m., Heavy, heavy traffic on I-70 east bound.


2 p.m., CLOSED- US 6 Loveland Pass due to adverse weather and poor visibility. HazMat vehicles use the Eisenhower Tunnel on I-70 at the top of the hour, other traffic held. Delays possible.

1 p.m., I-70 Eastbound is now open at Silverthorne after two multi-car pileups involving around 25 cars near Eisenhower Tunnel.

10:26 a.m., I-70 east bound closed due to an accident near mile marker 216.

10:10 a.m., Loveland Pass is closed due to avalanche hazards.

This week is just a teaser for what is predicted to come next week: a bigger storm mass. OpenSnow predicts light-to-moderate snowfall in the northern mountains through Thursday morning with 3-6 inches of accumulation possible.

A combination of winter weather and heavy traffic have caused delays on I-70.

You can almost guarantee, if it’s sticking in town, it’s surely sticking on I-70.

Traction law is in effect, in the mountain corridor of I-70 and on Loveland Pass.

As we can see, 2016 hasn’t had its fill of snow yet. Accumulations of a couple inches are expected for most resorts today and tomorrow.

Stay tuned for more updates on road conditions and weather reports.
