Massive rockslide closes Colorado highway ‘indefinitely’
CORTEZ, Colo. — A pair of massive boulders rolled off a Colorado mountainside and smashed into a highway, destroying the pavement and leaving a house-sized rock across the roadway that will have to be blasted apart, state transportation officials said Saturday. The highway is closed indefinitely, according to the San Miguel Sheriff, as crews removed unstable and loose rock to prevent another fall.
