With a series of atmospheric rivers triggering flooding and rockslides, Caltrans crews have been hard at work the past two weeks.
Several large boulders fell on Highway 50 just east of Kyburz during a storm in El Dorado National Park. Fortunately, none of the boulders struck a vehicle.
On Sunday, a Caltrans explosives team from South Lake Tahoe cleared the highway.
“(Sunday’s) boulder blasting on Highway 50 by our South Lake Tahoe area explosives team. Great work!” said Caltrans in a tweet that included a video of a large boulder being blown up.
