GOLDEN, Colo. – Both sides of US 6 at Loveland Pass reopened nearly six hours after a fatal crash closed that section of the highway early Wednesday evening, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

The highway was closed sometime before 7:30 p.m. following the crash on the Summit County side of the pass, Colorado State Patrol officials in Golden said in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

Vehicles carrying hazardous materials staged at Eisenhower Tunnel to go through at the top of the hour or as traffic allowed.

Drivers were advised to expect delays along that stretch of I-70 until the closure was lifted.

The highway was back open shortly after midnight on Thanksgiving.
