DENVER (AP) - Interstate 70 in eastern Colorado has reopened after it was shut down because of strong winds and blowing snow.

The highway was closed between Limon and Goodland, Kansas, on Tuesday morning as wind gusts reached up to around 60 mph on the Eastern Plains. The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/13X0c9L ) it was reopened Tuesday afternoon after an eight-hour closure.

To the west, blowing snow also forced transportation officials to close U.S. Highway 285 from Fairplay to Kenosha Pass a couple of times Tuesday.

The volume of traffic is also slowing travelers headed into Colorado’s mountains. Another round of snow is expected to move into Colorado on Christmas Day.
