Rockslide causes delays on Highway 133

Staff Report

Drivers on Highway 133 near the Paonia Reservoir should expect delays Tuesday after a rockslide closed the road Sunday and Monday, an official said.

A crew will be blasting and scaling rocks at the site of the rockslide Tuesday in an effort to stabilize the slope, said Tracy Trulove, spokesperson for the Colorado Department of Transportation. Drivers should expect 20- to 30-minute delays in that area, and the work could take two days, she said.

The rockslide closed the road for about 24 hours Sunday into Monday. CDOT crews were able to open one lane through the area Monday afternoon, Trulove said. The slide occurred near the north end of the reservoir, she said.
