GRAND JUNCTION, Colo —

UPDATE (5:45 pm): Both West and Eastbound right-side lanes have been opened. Lanes on the left, closest to the median, are still closed in both directions.

The Colorado Department of Transportation has closed eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 between mile markers 62 and 72. A tweet from CDOT explains the closure is due to fire activity. The left lane of westbound traffic is closed as well.

We will continue to monitor the situation as information becomes available.
