    Seems like this road in Utah just does not want to stay clear of rocks and boulders!

    It was completely repaired this past summer and now that winter weather has set in, scenic items are resting again on the road!

    Rock fall damages SR-14 again, but road remains open
    December 11, 2012

    CEDAR CITY شاِ A rock fall on SR-14 temporarily shut down the road Monday night, roughly six months after a much more serious rockslide closed it down for several months.

    UDOT spokesperson John Gleason said that changing temperatures and repeated expansion of rocks were likely the cause of the fall near mile post 8.

    The rock fall occurred around 5 p.m. Monday, but the road was opened for two way traffic by 9:30 p.m.

    Gleason said two large boulders roughly the size of SUVs still remain in the road. UDOT crews intend to use explosives to blow them out at some point Tuesday.

    Gleason said that while traffic was moving, removing the boulders would delay traffic about 15 minutes.

    UDOT crews will also repair some diverting and cracking in the road caused by the rock fall.

    A rock slide in the same area of SR-14 caused much more serious damage and shut down the road from October 2011 to May 2012. Link to more photos
