Eastbound Interstate 70 has been closed at the main Glenwood Springs exit due to a crash in Glenwood Canyon, according to a Garfield County emergency alert sent at 11:17 a.m. Tuesday.

The closure comes as Colorado Department of Transportation and the State Patrol reopened Vail Pass in Eagle County around 9:30 a.m. after heavy snow forced its closure early Tuesday morning.

There is no estimate for when Glenwood Canyon will reopen.
