I-70 runaway ramp reopened

| October 31, 2011

The runaway truck ramp on westbound I-70 near Vail, Colo., at mile marker 182 has been reopened after crews removed a rig and flatbed trailer that rolled on the ramp Sunday, Oct. 30.

Both lanes of westbound I-70 remained open.

The truck contained hazardous material, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation. Workers from an environmental cleanup company remain on site to remove hazardous material.

Westbound I-70 drivers may experience additional lane closures starting at mile marker 189 at Vail Pass due to previously scheduled construction, CDOT said.
