MOAB, Utah, March 3, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A rock slide on State Route 128 just outside Moab has closed the road in one direction Sunday morning.

A tweet from the Utah Highway Patrol Southeast Region said the rock slide happened at mile post 1 and there are five to six rocks “the size of motorhomes” on the roadway.

“Moab traffic is able to alternate around the rock slide,” a follow-up tweet said. “The Utah Department of Transportation is working to clear the road and checking the highway for damage.”
