FREMONT COUNTY – The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office tweeted that both lanes of Highway 50 are passable following a small rockslide west of the Royal Gorge.

Deputies said the rocks were very small and that drivers can still use Highway 50 in both directions. It happened near milemarker 160, near the Five Points Campsite along the Arkansas River.

Regardless, drivers should slow down and be prepared to stop in the area. Expect some delays if you’re headed east or west between Salida and Cañon City.
