Travel resumes on Highway 133

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

REDSTONE – Colorado Department of Transportation crews opened one lane of Highway 133 near Redstone late Thursday night.

Crews worked throughout the night after mudslides closed the highway in both directions near the north entrance to Redstone, according to CDOT. The largest slide was estimated at 4 to 6 feet deep and 100 yards long; it blocked the entire highway.

A Pitkin County Road and Bridge crew was also at work on the cleanup.

CDOT is urging motorists to plan on taking extra time to travel through the area.
