Alternating, one-lane traffic flow restored on Berthoud Pass

Sky-Hi News staff report
Winter Park, CO Colorado

WINTER PARK – One-lane, alternating traffic flow has been restored in both directions to U.S. 40 over Berthoud Pass after the westbound lane was closed earlier today in the wake of a single semi-trailer rollover accident.

The trailer was hauling solid trash on Berthoud Pass when the accident occurred about three miles east of Winter Park at mile marker 236 near Mary Jane.

Within the first hour, the trailer leaked about five gallons from its fuel tank, according to Colorado Department of Transportation spokesperson Bob Wilson. Clean-up efforts are under way.

The accident happened just after 11 a.m. It is not yet clear how long it will be before a full reopening of the highway will occur.
