Can the people who post these please give a a name reference to where this is? We don't always have our MM chart in front of us. Where is this located? Thanks

Our apologies Viking, it is between Genesee Town Center and Lookout Mountain. For handy reference, our Stickied Mile Marker list is here too!

The backups eastbound extend back to Evergreen Pkwy, not seeing any in the webcam views westbound, but they may be forming out of sight around the corner from Lookout Mountain. Please use caution going by.

I-70 eastbound has reopened at highway 6 (mm 244), but traffic is still backed up to exit 241, Idaho Springs. It’ll take a little while to clear.
