Update: One lane of Interstate 70 westbound was reopened as of 10 a.m. Proceed about your day.

Expect delays if you’re driving into downtown Denver from Aurora and other points east. A burning semi truck shut down Interstate 70’s westbound lanes near York Street around 6:40 a.m., and it remained closed with no estimated time of reopening as of 9:10 a.m.

No injuries were reported, and traffic was being detoured, according to Denver police. Check Colorado Department of Transportation for updates.
