COLORADO– A wildfire is causing multiple traffic closures on I-70 Wednesday evening.

Westbound traffic on I-70 is closed from Dotsero (exit 133) until Mile Point 109 (west of Glenwood Springs). Eastbound traffic is closed from MP 109 – 114 (Glenwood Springs). Motorists traveling from the Roaring Fork Valley or Glenwood can access eastbound I-70 towards Glenwood Canyon and beyond.

Please note that westbound traffic from Eagle County should NOT detour into Gypsum/Cottonwood Pass Road. Cottonwood Pass Rd is not recommended or accessible due to paving operations on Valley Road and utility work on Cottonwood Pass Rd.

There is no estimated time of reopening at these locations. See live updates here.
