UPDATE: Highway 133 reopens after rockslide between Carbondale and Redstone

Staff reports

Highway 133 reopened Friday afternoon after being closed for more than five hours because of a rockslide near the Penny Hot Springs.

The two-lane highway was closed just past mile marker 55 between Carbondale and Redstone, according to a Pitkin County alert sent just before 10 a.m. It was reopened about 3:30 p.m., the county said.

Workers at the Avalanche Ranch Hot Springs, which is near the area, said a slide covered mostly just the southbound lane but both lanes were closed.

Rainy weather was in the area overnight Thursday and Friday morning.

This is a developing story that will be updated.
