Highway 50 reopens near Salida after rockslide

SALIDA – U.S. 50 in south-central Colorado has reopened, six days after a major rockslide blocked both lanes with boulders up to 20 feet across.

The highway reopened around 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

A 46-mile stretch of the highway had been closed after the slide Monday between Canon City and Salida. The shortest detour was more than 100 miles.



The debris field was 100 feet long and 20 feet wide. No injuries were reported.
