GEORGETOWN, Colo. (AP) - Several accidents and snowy conditions closed Interstate-70 at the Eisenhower Tunnel for a short time on Sunday.

Colorado Department of Transportation traffic manager Brian Jordon says traffic in both directions was shut down briefly at the tunnel early Sunday because of fender-benders and spinouts.

Jordon says there are several major highways at higher elevations on the Western Slope with icy and snowpack conditions.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Park, Gore, Elk mountains and central mountain valleys, with up to seven inches of snow expected by midnight Sunday and winds gusting to 40 miles an hour.
