Interstate 70 in Colorado will be shut down in two places on Tuesday to allow for the removal of two wrecked semi trucks. 

The closures are planned near Grand Junction, Colorado beginning at 9 a.m. on January 4th and ending at around 5 p.m. 

According to NBC 11 News, the first closure will occur on westbound I-70 between exits 157 and 147 so that Colorado Department of Transportation can remove a wrecked semi truck from MP 155 after it crashed during the recent winter storms. There will be a detour onto US 6. The closure is expected to last from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. 

The second closure will occur on eastbound I-70 between exits 140 and 147 starting at 1 p.m. and ending at around 5 p.m. During this time, CDOT will be working to remove a wrecked semi truck from MP 143, where it wrecked around 200 yards off the roadway. There will be a detour onto US 6. 

More winter storms are expected to move through the area in the next four days.
