Westbound traffic waiting at the Eisenhower Tunner after CDOT closed it Tuesday afternoon.

DENVER — CDOT reopened the westbound lanes of Interstate 70 at Georgetown Tuesday after a hours-long closure because of accidents on the west side of the Eisenhower Tunnel.

The closure started around 1:15 p.m. and was lifted around 2:15, CDOT said.

Earlier in the day the interstate was closed at the Eisenhower Tunnel because of crashes.

Snow started falling in the mountains early Tuesday.  It’s expected this storm will bring several feet of snow to the high country.

Loveland Pass was also closed because of adverse conditions.

    It’s about time that chain laws include passenger vehicles. If folks had chains there is no way 6″ of snow would close the road.

    Chains may be a pain, but not so much as a closed road or ending up in the ditch.
