ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — I-70 was closed in both directions east of Denver Friday night because of icy roads and multiple crashes.

The Colorado State Patrol said there was one vehicle that rolled over, other crashes and vehicles that slid off the highway.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office asked people traveling in the area to find a route other than I-70.

There was no time estimated for reopening.
