TRAVEL ALERT: I-70 closed between Vail and Frisco due to avalanche, ruptured gas line

An avalanche near the Conoco station at Copper Mountain has ruptured a natural-gas line.

Interstate 70 is currently closed between Frisco and Vail. In addition, Colorado 91 is closed between Leadville and Copper and is not a suitable alternate route, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation. Crews are on scene.

Travelers are advised to expect long delays, or take alternative routes, according to CDOT’s cotrip.org site.

All eastbound commercial vehicles are being required to stage at Dotsero, Exit 133.
