Mudslide closes part of Highway 125; will stay closed overnight

Local News

GRAND COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — A mudslide closed Highway 125 in both directions Thursday afternoon.

The closure was between Trail Creek and County Road 54, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

The Grand County Sheriff said at 8:13 p.m. that the water had cleared from the roadways.

CDOT was to keep the road closed overnight from mile post 5.5 to just south of Rand.

A flash flood warning was in effect for the area through 8 p.m.

The highway had already been closed this week because of a mudslide.

CDOT warned Tuesday to prepare for major road closures throughout Colorado for at least the next week, as monsoon weather is in full effect and mudslide and flood risk is high.
