DE BEQUE, Colo. — A portion of Interstate 70 in western Colorado remains closed as crews try to prevent another rock slide.

A slide on I-70 in De Beque Canyon on Sunday disabled two cars and injured two people. Their injuries were described as minor to moderate.

Eastbound lanes of I-70 could remain closed until Thursday or Friday to allow unstable rocks to be brought down from the hillsides along the highway. Westbound lanes remain open.

Colorado Department of Transportation spokeswoman Tracy Trulove says the detour around the eastbound closure takes about 45 minutes.
