MOAB, Utah (ABC 4 News) - A rock slide on State Road 279 forced part of the road to be closed for several hours over the weekend.
UDOT officials say the slide dropped a huge boulder onto a six foot deep trench, opening it up another 20 more feet.
No one was hurt in the slide, but it demolished railroad tracks and part of the highway.
It's still not clear what caused the slide.
