I-70 open in Colorado after Kansas closure

DENVER — The interstate highway from Denver through northeast Colorado remains closed after state highway officials decided blizzard conditions in Nebraska are still too dangerous for travel.

The Colorado Department of Transportation said Wednesday that there is no estimated time for Interstate-76 to reopen.

Highway officials reopened Interstate-70 early Wednesday after it was closed because of severe weather in Kansas from a strong spring storm that brought blizzard conditions, snow and ice to the state on Tuesday.

A spokesman for Denver International Airport says operations are back to near normal after nearly 500 flights were canceled on Tuesday.
