Highway 50 remains closed by rock slide

US Highway 50 remains closed in Colorado because of a massive rock slide near Cotopaxi, west of Canon City, that covers the roadway.

Workers haven't even started removing the rocks. The decision was made yesterday to wait until a geologist arrives today to make sure the mountainside is stable so no rocks fall on workers as they clear the road.

There's no estimate on when the highway will reopen.
