PAONIA, Colo. (AP) — Colorado Highway 133 has fully reopened after a rock slide left a rock the size of a dump truck on the road near Paonia Reservoir.

The rockslide blocked the highway south of McClure Pass on Sunday after leaving behind several large rocks and a large crater in the road. Crews worked to move rocks and secure the hillside before reopening the highway to two-way traffic Thursday.

The Colorado Department of Transportation says Colorado 133 will remain open through the weekend, but more cleanup work is planned for next week. That will reduce the highway to a single lane of alternating traffic at times.
