DENVER – Interstate 70 reopened between Silverthorne and Loveland Pass after a full closure due to a fiery crash late Wednesday afternoon.
The Colorado State Patrol in Golden tweeted a few details about the closure at around 4:17 p.m.
Officials said a semi tractor/trailer was burning on the westbound side of the highway three miles east of the Eisenhower Tunnel.
By 5:46 p.m., CSP reported that the fire was out and that the interstate would be reopening. The Colorado Department of Transportation confirmed shortly after the interstate was back open.
