I–70 is back open this morning after a rockslide clogged up traffic.

Rain caused a rockslide on Interstate 70 keeping CDOT crews busy cleaning up overnight.

The rocky debris spilled onto the road at around 5:30 yesterday at mile marker 57 in De Beque Canyon. It closed an east bound lane of the interstate for about two and a half hours.

Officials say no one was injured and no vehicles were damaged in the rockslide.
