CDOT Wraps Up Work Alongside Highway 24

Work has wrapped up on Highway 24 near Manitou Springs where Colorado Department of Transportation crews have been cleaning up rocks along the roadside.

The crews started around 9 a.m. Tuesday along the hillsides in Ute Pass just outside of Manitou Springs.

After the rockslide a couple of weeks ago, crews checked the area and found several rocks that could eventually fall. Tuesday's work was to mitigate those potentially dangerous falls and to take care of any loose rocks before they cause trouble.

One lane of the highway, westbound, was closed for part of the day, causing plenty of headaches for those needing to travel on Highway 24.

The road has opened again now that crews have finished their work.
