Crews worked overnight to pave and stripe portions of damaged road.
E-470 tolls are no longer being waved.
On Wednesday afternoon a tanker truck carrying fuel in the northbound lanes of I-25 crashed into a median, spilling the fuel and causing a fiery crash.
The wreck shut down all of I-25 near Orchard Road, in the Greenwood Village area for hours. According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, 200,000 to 250,000 people travel in this stretch daily.
The driver of the tanker, identified as 57-year-old Enrique Jose Dominguez, was injured and taken to the hospital. He is expected to recover.
