UPDATE: Fully closed in both directions, perhaps for an extended period. See CDOT link.

Due to flooding and debris on the road, CDOT has closed Highway 72 for eastbound traffic at Twin Spruce Road. Eastbound (down canyon) is closed, however westbound (up canyon) is open … although there is still significant water on the road.

NOTE: The lane closure will likely be in place for the next few hours.

UPDATE: Check with CDOT here https://maps.cotrip.org/event/CDOT-10194998665EB?show=roadWork,roadReports,weatherRadar,weatherWarnings for more up-to-date details on closure details.
