Traffic is backing up on U.S. Route 199 between Gasquet and Patrick’s Creek due to several car-sized boulders that rolled out onto the roadway around 10 a.m.
According to the California Highway Patrol incident report, one-way traffic has been set up in the area while crews work to clear the gargantuan rocks from the road.
Caltrans reports on Facebook that crews are already on scene.
“From the photo you can see these are not your typical basketball and smaller rocks that are common along our coastal highways,” the Caltrans Facebook post reads. “They are just a little bit larger!”
