Highway 133 near Redstone reopens Friday morning after mudslides Thursday
A section of Highway 133 near Redstone in the Crystal River Valley reopened Friday morning after mudslides Thursday caused by heavy rains rolled through earlier in the day.
The state highway was closed between Coal Creek Road and Redstone Boulevard, about 8 miles north of McClure Pass, because of “multiple mudslides“ according to the Pitkin County officials.
One lane reopened Friday morning with alternating traffic, so delays should be expected.
The valley has been hit with numerous mudslides the past few weeks.
John Lorme, CDOT director or maintenance operations, said Friday afternoon that crews on the ground said 20 different debris flows last night in the area.
“The local supervisor said it was ‘absolutely epic’ the amount of debris,” Lorme said.
