Interstate 70 reopens west of the tunnel after morning accidents

Interstate 70’s westbound lanes have reopened after closing Saturday morning at mile marker 215, just west of the Eisenhower Tunnel, due to multiple spin-outs.

Also, the Colorado Department of Transportation put into effect, lifted, reissued and then again lifted traction-law requirements for Loveland Pass, all before 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Currently, roads are slick east of the Eisenhower Tunnel, with snow starting to accumulate on I-70.

It remains mostly dry in Summit County between Silverthorne and Frisco, west of the tunnel. For weather and road updates click here and here.
