BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - A rockslide forced the closure of a road through Boulder Canyon in Colorado on Tuesday.

The rockslide happened on Colorado 119 and was announced just before 7 p.m. by the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. The closure is expected to last several days and impacts a stretch of the road from Boulder to the top of the canyon in Nederland, about 15 miles.

On Wednesday the sheriff’s office was reporting crews will likely need to do repair work on the road after they blast the boulders and haul them away.

The sheriff’s office recommends the public utilize CoTrip.org for updates and alternate routes.

No injuries were reported in the rockslide.
