UPDATE on closures on I-70 and Berthoud Pass due to avalanche mitigation: Snow has covered some lanes on Berthoud Pass, but we are able to alternate traffic to allow motorists to travel on US 40. Motorists should plan on delays. Clean-up continues.


I-70 remains closed between the Loveland Pass exit and Silverthorne exit due to clean-up efforts after avalanche mitigation. Loveland Pass is still closed. If you are in Summit County, the I-70 detour is HWY 9 to 285. If you are traveling from metro area it is 285 to HWY 9.

Motorists traveling on westbound I-70 before the Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnels will be turned around at Georgetown. Thank you for your patience as we work to reopen the interstate.

UPDATE - 1:30 p.m. Closure of I-70 will remain from Silverthorne to Empire (mm 205 to 232) INTO THE EVENING (est. 6+ hours). There was a significant debris field, with trees and rocks included, which did significant damage to our cable rail in the area.

UPDATE: @ColoradoDOT plan at Herman Gulch: traffic control will be put in place- “several hours away from that”
Good news: US 40 is reopened as a detour.
• Tenmile Canyon mitigation continues, should be opened back up soon.

Both Lanes, Both Directions. Fantastic job by @ColoradoDOT getting the snow and trees cleared out. Travelers, please remain cautious for remaining across the highway between Herman Gulch (mp 218) and Loveland (mp 216).

US 6 Loveland Pass will remain closed. S1
