GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (KKCO) -- The Colorado Department of Transportation and local law enforcement are dealing with a number of crashes along Interstate 70 due to rainy, snowy conditions.

Eastbound I-70 at milemarker 116 in Glenwood Springs is closed after semi trucks became stuck in the area, according to

More accidents and snowy weather has forced CDOT to close both lanes of I-70 at Vail Pass (milemarker 180). Personal passenger vehicles can use Highway 91 as a detour, but commercial vehicles won't be allowed on that road. Crews expect this could be a long-term closure.

U.S. Highway 40/Berthoud Pass will be closed overnight, and there's no estimated time of reopening.

U.S. Highway 6/Loveland Pass is also shut down.
