Interstate 70 is expected to be closed in both directions between US 6 Loveland Pass (Exit 216) and Silverthorne (Exit 205) through much of the day. Eastbound and westbound lanes will continue to be closed, including the Eisenhower Johnson Memorial Tunnels, due to a tractor-trailer crash and cleanup. Motorists should expect delays. Traffic is detoured on US 6 Loveland Pass. 

A tractor trailer crashed and caught fire late last night. The crash occurred on a westbound I-70 bridge just east of Silverthorne. CDOT crews are clearing the debris and assessing the damage for repairs. CDOT is keeping the eastbound side closed as a safety precaution due to the visibility and sensitivity of crash clean-up on the westbound side. 

Delays will get longer through the day. Information will be updated on COtrip.org and CDOT’s social media platforms.
