VIDEO: Boulder-busting time along State Route 88

By Steve Elliott / ADOT Communications

Sometimes showing beats telling by a country mile. That's the case with our recent use of a product called Boulder Busters to remove a massive rock that slid down the slope next to State Route 88 east of the Valley.

With words and images, including some shot from a drone, the video above shows how ADOT workers went about removing this boulder in a way that minimized traffic impacts while reducing the potential for damage to the roadway and for more rocks to tumble down the slope.
