About 30 cubic metres of rock fell onto Highway 23 North near Mica Hill in the early afternoon of July 26.

The rock fall cut off the highway for a brief period, but crews were soon able to get a one-lane bypass open.

They then called for a bigger piece of equipment to help them deal with this giant boulder.

A B.C. transportation ministry spokesperson said there were no injuries in the incident.
