Highway 40 reopens after shelter in place alert issued to area residents

US Highway 40, between Granby and Tabernash, has been reopened and one individual is in police custody after a segment of the roadway was briefly shut down Wednesday evening due to law enforcement activity.

Details on what led to the incident were scant early Wednesday evening but officials from Grand County confirmed that more than a dozen law enforcement officials had been sent to the area and the county’s armored vehicle was also called to the scene.

A shelter in place Code Red alert was issued Wednesday evening for portions of Grand County in the Red Dirt Hill area, which were impacted by the police action.

This story will be updated as additional details become available.
