PAONIA, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado transportation officials say it may be later this week before they reopen Colorado Highway 133 south of McClure Pass after a rockslide left at least one rock the size of dump truck on the road near Paonia Reservoir.

The Colorado Department of Transportation closed Colorado 133 Sunday morning about 13 miles south of McClure Pass after about seven or eight rocks fell from the hillside. The rockslide left a hole about two feet deep, 12 feet long and 10 feet wide in the road.

The highway closure means people traveling between Paonia and the Roaring Fork Valley will need to take a detour of about 140 miles.
