Loveland Pass reopens after mudslide

U.S. 6 had been closed since Saturday night due to a mudslide near Arapahoe Basin, according to CDOT.

CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. — U.S. 6 over Loveland Pass was closed due to a mudslide late Saturday near Arapahoe Basin, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).

CDOT tweeted just before 2 p.m. Sunday that the safety closure had been lifted.

The closure was expected to last for most of the day Sunday and possibly longer, CDOT said Sunday morning. The alternate route was Interstate 70 through the Eisenhower Tunnel.

Regular traffic through the tunnel both directions was stopped at the top of each hour so that hazmat vehicles could be escorted through the tunnel, CDOT said.

The U.S. 6 closure extended from I-70 to near Arapahoe Basin Ski Area.

Mudslides have also forced the closure of I-70 in Glenwood Canyon at least through Monday. The interstate is closed between Mile Marker 133 at Dotsero and Mile Marker 87 in West Rifle.
