GEORGETOWN, Colo. — Georgetown was "closed" due to weather-related traffic on Interstate 70 on Wednesday evening, Colorado State Patrol announced.

It has reopened.

In a tweet earlier in the evening, the department said unchained semi-trucks had "choked I-70 so badly that the Town of Georgetown (exit 228) is completely plugged too."

Clear Creek County law enforcement closed the frontage road from Empire Junction to ensure emergency vehicles have access.

Drivers were urged to avoid the area.
