Eastbound I-70 through Glenwood Canyon reopens

Eastbound Interstate 70 through Glenwood Canyon reopened sooner than expected at about 2:10 p.m. Saturday afternoon after an accident, according to an alert from the Colorado Department of Transportation.

Shortly after noon Saturday, I-70 was closed in both directions through the canyon when multiple semi-trucks became wedged together. Both westbound lanes were reopened just before 1:30 p.m., but cleanup of the eastbound lanes took longer and they reopened about two hours after the accident.

This is the third time this week that at least one lane of the interstate through the canyon was been closed because of truck accidents.
