A rockslide closed Highway 141 Sunday, days after C-DOT crews finished clearing one in the same spot.

The rockslide happened at mile marker 78 near Naturita. That's the same location as another rockslide which occurred on September 27.

Authorities say no vehicles were damaged and no one was hurt in the incident.

State Highway 141 remains closed at this hour. C-DOT says it will have to bring in heavy equipment and blast large rocks out of the way before the road can be re-opened.
