DENVER — Officials reported closures of Highway 133 in Pitkin County and U.S. 40 in Routt County due to rock slides Wednesday morning.
The Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office reported a “major rock slide” on Highway 133 in both directions near Redstone at mile marker 44 just before 5 a.m.
Less than 30 minutes later, the Colorado Department of Transportation reported another rock slide — this one just outside of Steamboat Springs.
U.S. 40 closed between Forest Service Road 296 and County Road 20 near Rabbit Ears Pass, but reopened by about 6:15 a.m.
Further details were not immediately available on either rock slide.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
