(Ouray, CO) -- U.S. 550 through Red Mountain Pass near Ouray will remain closed at least through the weekend. Crews are still trying to clear a rock slide which has shut down the roadway for more than a week. CDOT says workers were able to stabilize the area somewhat by dropping ten 30-pounds bombs on the slope yesterday. Officials say there's still a high danger of rocks falling from as high as one-thousand feet up.
