CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – The Colorado Department of Transportation closed westbound lanes of Interstate 70 at Empire Junction because of a mud and rockslide. The lanes were reopened at around 9:30 p.m.
This closure was separate from the closure through Glenwood Canyon which has been ongoing since Thursday. That section of interstate has been repeatedly closed and reopened all summer due to mud and debris slides.
