According to CDOT, personnel made progress yesterday scaling more loose rock from an entire field of the stuff and drilling rock anchors to hold netting in place that's intended to restrain more stones from falling.
As we noted in our previous coverage, at least 46 nets are expected to be installed, with helicopters used to hoist them and workers on the cliffs to secure them in place. Not only will crew members be located high above the roadway, but they're have to do their jobs at severe angles, convincing us that whatever they're paid, it's not nearly enough.
No date for the closure's end has been announced, but CDOT staffers expect the work to continue through the weekend.
Here are the most recent pics from the scene, featuring CDOT captions. They're followed by our earlier report.Continue to see our previous coverage of efforts to reopen Red Mountain Pass, including additional photos and videos.
