FLOYD HILL, Colo. — Interstate 70 reopened early Saturday morning after the Colorado Department of Transportation announced Friday evening that westbound I-70 will be closed overnight at the bottom of Floyd Hill at U.S. 6 due to a rock slide and mudslide.

Traffic was backed up about eight miles around 7:20 p.m., and everyone was discouraged from traveling on westbound I-70.

U.S. 6 was closed from Colo. 119 to I-70, the ramp from eastbound I-70 to U.S. 6 was closed and U.S. 40 from the top of Floyd Hill to U.S. 6 was closed.
