One lane of Gunnison County Road 3 reopened Wednesday night after mud and rocks covered the road leading into Marble at Slate Creek, according to the Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District.

The main road heading into the small town of Marble was closed earlier Wednesday just west of town limits when the slide first occurred a little after 6 p.m.

Marble is located along the Crystal River in the remote north part of the Gunnison County near the Pitkin County line, about 23 miles south of Carbondale.

Slate Creek is just before Serpentine Trail, about a quarter-mile west of the Marble town limits, according to Jenny Cutright, spokeswoman for the Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District which serves the area and has a fire station there.

She said there were no reports of injuries from the slide.
