After parts of Interstate 70 were shut down all day, C-DOT officials say the highway has completely re-opened.

The only road that remains closed is US-6 through Loveland Pass. Officials say they hope to re-open that road Tuesday.

Crews spent today trying to conduct avalanche control but say their efforts are hampered by high winds and poor visibility.

Whiteout conditions and high winds still exist along the highway.

CDOT is still advising motorists not to travel to the high country and does not advise motorists to wait at the I-70 closure points for reopening.
