    Crews drilled holes inside huge boulders and detonated explosives inside in an effort to clean up the traffic lanes on State Route 78. This was after a winter storm caused a rock slide in Ramona. (Published Wednesday, March 1, 2017)

    Several massive boulders fell along State Route 78, closing the highway through San Diego's North County Wednesday.

    SR-78 was closed from Bandy Canyon Road to 3 miles east of San Diego at Haverford Road, according to CalTrans.

    As of 6 a.m. Thursday, both eastbound and westbound lanes were reopened to traffic.
