DISAUTEL PASS – A boulder temporarily blocked one lane of state Highway 155 near Disautel Pass this morning.

The highway was not closed, and motorists drove around the obstruction at milepost 56 until the state Department of Transportation pushed it to the shoulder about 9:45 a.m., said Mark Peters of the department’s Wenatchee office.

Several smaller rocks also fell, but were not blocking the road when Transportation crews arrived.

Peters said the rock fall was reported to the department sometime after 8 a.m.

The incident occurred about two miles south of the Disautel summit.
