WB I-70 reopens in Vail following closure due to rock slide danger
12:22 p.m. I-70 WB has reopened in Vail
11:05 a.m. Active rock slide danger in Dowd Junction has closed I-70 in Vail in the westbound direction.
Motorists are advised to exit at mile marker 180 in East Vail, if possible, and head west to Vail Parking Structure and the Vail Welcome Center, where updates will be made available.
“I’ll get a text as soon as it reopens,” said Welcome Center attendant Mark Christie.
Talk about perfect timing. Beaver Creek Resort made the big announcement earlier in the week that it would open Saturday, four days ahead of schedule, and then the flakes started flying.
