ST. GEORGE — Traffic on state Route 14 just outside of Cedar City is being slowed in both directions after a rock slide Tuesday morning forced the partial closure.

“Traffic is being stopped and routed through the rubble one direction at a time,” St. George News editor Paul Dail said after visiting the scene. “So drivers are being asked to slow down on the approach. They’re having to navigate around the rocks.”

One of the boulders has created a deep divot in the road on the westbound lane that will have to be repaired once the eastbound lane is cleared.

The UDOT website estimates the rock slide will be cleared at 1 p.m.
