Rockslide north of Paonia closes Highway 133
The Colorado Department of Transportation reported Wednesday that Highway 133 is closed at milemarker 29.5, north of Paonia, due to a rock slide.
Traffic is being diverted at the Collbran turn-off, around milemarker 36, and at Kebler Pass at milemarker 24. The closure is expected to be long-term.
“CDOT crews are on scene and working with a geohazards contractor to begin the process of downsizing the boulders to clear the highway,” according to CDOT’s Facebook page. “There is no estimated time for reopening.
