LONE TREE, Colo. – The ramp leading from eastbound C-470 to southbound Interstate 25 was closed early Thursday afternoon while crews worked to clean up a crash involving a wind turbine blade. 

A truck was transporting the blade, and it collided with a barrier on the side of the ramp and caused some damage, according to City of Lone Tree spokeswoman Kristen Knoll.

No one was hurt in the crash. The driver is being cited for careless driving.

Officials said they will need to bring a crane in to clean up the scene. There’s no estimate for how long the ramp will be closed.
