DENVER – A major crash Monday morning closed US 6 in both directions between Golden and Highway 119 for several hours.

The crash was reported just before 5:30 a.m. by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). Officials from the department said the closure was due to “safety concerns," but CDOT cameras from the scene showed a vehicle that had been totaled. No other information about the nature of the crash was immediately released.

Denver7 Traffic Expert Jayson Luber suggested using I-70 to get to Morrison all the way up to the bottom of Floyd Hill, then taking Highway 6 back to Highway 119 to get back to the central City/Black Hawk and then to Highway 119, as an alternate route.

The highway reopened in both directions by 6:40 a.m.
