October 22, 2016
PAONIA, Colo. (AP) — State transportation officials say a western Colorado highway has reopened after crews cleared away more than 100 tons of debris from a rock slide.
Colorado 133 reopened north of Paonia on Friday.
The slide occurred Wednesday morning at the north end of Paonia Reservoir. It caused extensive damage to the road and a concrete barrier, but no vehicles were hit.
The Colorado Department of Transportation says an average if more than 1,100 vehicles use the highway every day.
