(CBS4) – The Colorado Department of Transportation closed U.S. 6 over Loveland Pass because of a mudslide. They say the slide hit the roadway on Saturday near the Arapahoe Basin Ski Area.

The road was reopened just before 2 p.m.

As with a previous closure, hazmat vehicles, like fuel trucks, were stopped at the tunnels and will be allowed through at the top of each hour. Other drivers should expect intermittent pauses in traffic.
