SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) – A crash west of Eisenhower Tunnel forced the closure of westbound Interstate 70 between Loveland Pass and Silverthorne on Monday morning.

Winter driving conditions continue through the mountain areas, and officials are also planning on completely closing I-70 starting at 9 a.m. for winter maintenance operations as crews work to mitigate avalanches.

Eastbound I-70 will be closed at the Vail exit, and westbound I-70 will be closed at the Leadville exit.
