I-70 WB slowed between New Castle and Silt due to wreck

Traffic on westbound Interstate 70 is reportedly being slowed between New Castle and Silt due to an overturned vehicle near the Silt exit, according to eyewitness accounts shared on Facebook.

Colorado Department of Transportation’s cotrip.org has not indicated an official closure at this time, but U.S. 6 or the frontage road are alternative routes for local traffic.

This report will be updated as new information becomes available.
