A rockfall event has closed Colorado Highway 145 in the southwest portion of the state after two house-sized boulders destroyed the full width of the highway pavement. The event occurred on Friday before the Holiday weekend, about 12 miles north of the Town of Dolores, between Cortez and Telluride.
The Colorado DOT has not indicated when the highway might reopen. The boulder sitting in the middle of the road has been blasted into more smaller, more manageable pieces as seen on this video from CDOT.
