The Colorado Department of Transportation closed a portion of Colorado Hwy 133 near the Paonia Reservoir this (Oct. 19) morning after a rock slide completely blocked two lanes.

The highway is closed in both directions between mile markers 23.5 and 36.5. Traffic is being diverted at the Collbran turn-off and Kebler Pass.

CDOT crews are currently working to downsize the boulders to clear the roadway. There is no estimated reopening time.

If you're traveling in the area, stay up-to-date by visiting COTrip.org.
