For those who are planning on making the voyage on I-70, keep these things at hand: a full tank of gas, snacks, water, blanket, first aid kit. For those already on I-70, we are working to open I-70 and make sure it’s safe. We know it’s frustrating, but your safety is our priority

Folks stuck EB b/w Silverthorne and the tunnel, thank you for your patience. We are hoping to open in the next 30-40 minutes. Please know circumstances can change so that estimate could be extended. Safety comes first and we want to get you home safely.

Lots of spin outs happening eastbound past the tunnel paired with icy conditions. We’re working as fast and safely as we can with the Colorado State Patrol to get I-70 moving again.

Check road conditions at cotrip.org . Mountain driving is no joke, make sure you're prepared or stick to Plan B. Be safe out there!

I-70 is closed westbound at Morrison Road. Eastbound still closed at Silverthorne. Blowing snow has caused visibility to be at only 5 feet. Eisenhower Johnson Memorial Tunnels have lost power so there is currently no control over the lights on the highway, digital message boards & they are having difficulty connecting to radios with crews on the ground. They’re working via cellphone to connect with our traffic operations center in Golden to get digital messages on the highway. Snow is currently falling faster than it’s possible for our plows to keep up

Parts of I-70 are closed due to adverse conditions and multiple slide-offs. Passenger traction laws are in effect as well: mymountaintown.com/forum/46-scanner-emer...t-november-23#354471

Snowing heavy on 70. We are headed east back to Evergreen and they have shut down 70 West just before Loveland. Drive safe everyone.
