Interstate 70 in Colorado reopened

DENVER (AP) – Interstate 70 in Colorado’s High Country is back open following weather closures.

Westbound Interstate 70 at the Eisenhower Tunnel was temporarily shut down Wednesday morning because of an accident and snowy conditions.

Blowing snow had also closed a 65-mile stretch of I-70 between Idaho Springs and Vail Tuesday night but that stretch as since reopened.

The roads over Loveland Pass and Berthoud Pass were still closed Wednesday morning, disrupting travel on the opening day of the Winter Park ski resort. The good news is, once skiers get there, they’ll find over 6 inches of fresh snow.
