Updated 1:51 p.m.

I-70 eastbound opened at 1:51 p.m.

We have an I-70 eastbound closure between mile markers 146 and 156. Detours are in place and officials ask drivers take US-6, near Eagle, eastbound to Wolcott where they can merge back onto I-70. Officials expect the closure to last three or more hours.

There is also a warning in place for wet and slippery roads at Vail Pass. The eastbound rest area there is closed due to safety concerns.
