CO SNOW TUNNEL

Interstate 70 in Summit County, Colorado is open again after deteriorating weather conditions caused multiple crashes. Snow has been falling in the higher elevations of the Rocky Mountains since Wednesday.

Eastbound I-70 was closed from Silverthorne to the Eisenhower and Johnson tunnels due to multiple crashes on Thursday.

The Colorado Department of Transportation decided to close I-70 due to the weather conditions and number of crashes.

A passenger bus was stuck near Silverthorne due to the closure. According to a tweet by ‘Ride Bustang’, the bus was heading to Denver.

Around 12:30 p.m. MDT, the wrecks were all cleared, and all lanes on eastbound I-70 were reopened about two miles east of the Eisenhower and Johnson tunnels.
