Highway Closed For Rock Slide Near Manitou Springs

MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A major highway near Manitou Springs is temporarily closed while road crews clean up a large rock slide.

Colorado Department of Transportation crews are working Friday to remove nearly a dozen rocks off Colorado Highway 24. Some of the rocks that fell Tuesday are as big as a car.

Crews pushed the rocks off the road and brought in a machine to blast the rocks into smaller pieces for easier removal.
