MORRISON, Colo. — The westbound lanes of Interstate 70 reopened around 3 a.m. Thursday morning following an overnight closure due to crashes and multiple vehicle spin-outs from poor weather conditions.

The westbound lanes were closed at Morrison.  The eastbound lanes of I-70 were closed at Idaho Springs.

The westbound lanes were closed between Morrison (mile marker 259) and Idaho Springs.

The Colorado Department of Transportation says traction laws are in effect in both directions of I-70 between Denver and Idaho Springs.
