Update: Highway 133 reopened after rockslide between Carbondale and Redstone

Aspen Times staff report

A rockslide near the Penny Hot Springs closed Highway 133 in both directions Friday morning, according to a Pitkin County alert. Highway 133 was reopened around 3:30 p.m. in the afternoon.

The two-lane highway was closed just past mile marker 55, according the alert sent just before 10 a.m.

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

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