Interstate 70 reopened after multi-car crash caused shutdown

The Colorado Department of Transportation announced the closure of eastbound Interstate 70 at the Eisenhower Tunnel Saturday afternoon. Two hours later, the crash had been cleaned and all lanes reopened.

A tweet posted by CDOT at 3:32 p.m. said that the closure was a result of a multi-car crash near the Loveland exit. Drivers were warned of “snowing, snow packed and icy” as well as wet and windy conditions.

At 5:40 p.m., the department tweeted that the interstate was open.
