Interstate 70 in central Colorado has been closed as crews conduct avalanche mitigation.
CDOT reports that both eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 are covered by snow brought down between the Eisenhower Tunnel and Georgetown.
CDOT says the interstate could be closed until mid-afternoon as crews remove the snow.
In addition, crews are conducting avalanche control at Vail Pass.
As a result, nearly 40 miles (64 kilometers) of the interstate was affected by the avalanche work between Vail Pass and Georgetown.
The closure comes two days after an avalanche closed the interstate between Frisco and Copper Mountain. No injuries were reported.
