SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. — Closures were in place on either side of the Eisenhower Tunnel on Interstate 70 due to an "active police situation," the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) said on Twitter Saturday.
CSP said they were investigating a report of a potential bomb in an SUV.
A CSP spokesperson said they received a report from someone who knew the driver of that SUV at around 1:20 p.m.
Troopers contacted the driver west of the tunnel and called in the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad. After determining there were no explosives, the site was deemed safe and the highway was reopened by 5:30 p.m.
The CSP spokesperson said the incident was the result of a misunderstanding and that a mental health issue was a factor.
