SILVER PLUME — There's no estimate yet for when US Highway 6 over Loveland Pass could reopen following a mudslide.

A slide about 75 feet wide buried the highway east of the pass with 7 feet of debris on Tuesday.

Photographs showed full grown pine trees, boulders and mud on the two-lane highway.

Colorado transportation officials hope to have at least one lane reopened soon.
