ECHO SUMMIT, Calif. (KRON) — A major route to South Lake Tahoe was closed Friday after a large rockslide shut down Highway 50 near Echo Summit.
Drivers narrowly missed massive boulders that came crashing down Friday morning.
A representative with Caltrans says rockslides are actually common this time of year in that area.
The highway was back open to one lane around 2:26 p.m.
Caltrans says crews will monitor 24/7 through the weekend to make sure the route is safe for travel.
