Wow, two rollovers on 86?!My day was 2 rollovers on Highway 86 non injury, drivers shook up.Ramah tower took another hit like yesterday and was down until the afternoon. Had to go back to VHF. CSP had 3 rollovers on I-70. It was a fun day. Roads were a mess, heavy rain first then to wet snow.(four wheeling in the mud!!! ) But hey, its springtime in the rockies. Gotta love it!!!
That is a huge boulder! I wonder what kind of equipment they'll bring in to break it apart? I could imagine how the ground must have shook when that thing hit the road. I wonder if you can listen in while they're working on it.JEFFERSON COUNTY - Just before 6:30 p.m. Friday a large boulder fell and is now blocking the southbound lanes of US 285 near mile marker 247.
That is one mile south of the Morrison.
According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, (CDOT) US 285 is closed southbound at C-470, and drivers should avoid the area.
CDOT is waiting for a special piece equipment to break apart the rock and clear the road, but there is no word on how long that will take.
