DEBEQUE CANYON, Colo. (KKCO) - Colorado State Patrol says a rockslide at mile marker 51 has been cleaned up and all lanes of I-70 are now open.

The rockslide happened near the tunnel around 9:35 a.m. Monday. The rockslide initially closed both westbound lanes and one eastbound lane.

Traffic was stopped for a time Monday morning as CDOT crews worked to remove large boulders from the road. There were no reports of injuries or damage.
