SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. -- Eastbound Interstate 70 was closed at Silverthorne Thursday morning due to multiple crashes.

The Colorado Department of Transportation closed the highway at 4:59 a.m.

The highway reopened at about 5:45 a.m.

The traction law is in effect on I-70 between Copper Mountain and Vail. That means passenger vehicles are required to have snow or mud/snow tires, use chains/alternative traction devices, or be a 4WD/AWD vehicle.
