SUMMIT COUNTY ” Authorities have reopened westbound I-70 near the Eisenhower Tunnel after a series of accidents forced a brief closure during wintry weather.

The snow also prompted authorities to put the chain law in effect for commercial vehicles, but that has been lifted.

The east-bound lanes were not closed.

The Eisenhower Tunnel is about 60 miles west of Denver at more than 11,000 feet elevation.
