UPDATE at 1:43 p.m.: Colorado State Patrol has closed down eastbound I-70 at the Silverthorne exit as a safety precaution. There is no estimated time for the road to reopen.

Original Story: Winter hasn’t left us yet, and it seems intent on wreaking a little more havoc before making room for spring.

Eastbound I-70 is currently closed east of the Eisenhower Tunnel due to a car crash. There is currently no timetable for the road to reopen. Additionally, eastbound I-70 is closed at Herman Gulch due to a multi-vehicle crash.

Passenger vehicle traction laws are currently in effect on I-70 between Silverthorne to Georgetown, and commercial vehicle chain laws are in effect between Bakerville and the Eisenhower Tunnel.
