US 550 Red Mountain Pass will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time due to the significant snow triggered on South Red Mountain. More than a half mile of snow slabs, 10 to 30 ft. deep in some areas, have fallen onto the highway. The snow slide includes an extensive amount of debris, limbs, trees. Extra equipment is needed and has been called in from others areas to clear the highway.
CDOT emphasizes there is no estimated time of opening Red Mountain Pass at this time.
