Rock slide on the Central City Parkway

The Central City Parkway closed Tuesday after a large rock slide blocked all four lanes of the highway that leads to the gambling towns from I-70 near Idaho Springs.

The highway won’t reopen until sometime Wednesday.

Central City Police say the rocks came tumbling down onto the road around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Nobody was hurt when the slide happened.
