Mudslide

Debris flow made Highway 133 impassible near mile-marker 53 for a two-hour spell on Tuesday.

Highway 133 south of Carbondale near the Penny Hot Springs was closed for just under two hours on Tuesday due to a mud-and-rock slide.

A call came in at around 2 p.m. advising authorities of the debris flow around mile-marker 53. 

Upon arrival, crews found both lanes of Highway 133 covered in rocks, mud and other material. The road was impassable and the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office and Colorado Department of Transportation restricted access to anyone who did not live in the area.

The road reopened around 4 p.m., according to a press release.

 There were no injuries.
