A chase from Parachute and a police stop 3 miles west of Glenwood Springs closed Interstate 70 in both directions for a time Saturday evening.

By 10 p.m., one lane of the highway was open in each direction.
The reason for the chase was not known over the weekend, but Garfield County authorities said Parachute police initiated it and the driver was a 16-year-old.
