Eastbound traffic swerved into the oncoming lane to avoid the rocks. Police responded and were on site until road maintenance crews arrived and closed down an eastbound lane of traffic. This lane was closed for several days while additional loose rocks were removed. No injuries or property damage was reported.

Ice risky
