Multiple crashes closed Interstate 70 in both directions Monday morning between Morrison and Genesee.

The highway has since reopened. Earlier, CDOT said to expect an extended closure and characterized what had happened as a "major crash."

It’s unclear how many vehicles were involved in the crashes or if anyone was injured.
