SILVER PLUME, Colo. (AP) - US 6 over Loveland Pass has been closed by a mudslide.

The Colorado Department of Transportation said a slide Tuesday stretching about 75 feet wide left about 7 feet of debris on the centerline of US 6 on the eastern side of Loveland Pass. CDOT spokeswoman Tracy Trulove said there were no reports of injuries or damage to vehicles traveling the road about 45 miles west of Denver.

The road will remain closed until at least Wednesday so geologist can examine the stability of the slope.

Trucks carrying hazardous cargo are normally routed onto the road to avoid Eisenhower Tunnel on Interstate 70. Those trucks will be escorted through the tunnel.

The slide happened about 90 miles east of a massive mudslide Saturday that left three people missing.
