45,000-pound paving machine slides off trailer, blocks Hwy 83 for hours

Posted: Updated:

Southbound Highway 83 was closed in north Colorado Springs for three hours Wednesday afternoon after a 45,000-pound piece of paving equipment slid off its trailer.

A semi-truck was carrying the equipment, but it wasn't properly secured and it slid off of the trailer into the southbound lanes.

Traffic was blocked while crews used heavy equipment to remove the machinery from the highway. There were no injuries in the incident and the equipment was removed from the road safely.

The driver of the truck was cited for operating a vehicle with an insecure load.
