KOOSKIA, ID - The Idaho Transportation Department spent the day drilling and blasting to break apart a large rock that closed part of US 12 about 40 miles east of Kooskia yesterday. The largest rock was 12 feet wide, 12 feet tall, and 20 feet long (107 cubic yards of rock). US 12 westbound, between Pete King Creek Road and Bald Mountain, was reduced to one lane until crews were able to clear the road at about 2:00 this afternoon. (PHOTO courtesy of ITD).
