(UPDATE 2/3/19 7:07 p.m.) -- Garfield County sheriffs say heavy rains may have caused the boulder to come loose and roll onto S.R. 12.

"A large boulder rolled down into one lane of SR 12 causing a slight delay in travel," the Garfield County Sheriff's Department said on Facebook. "It is believed that the heavy rains in the night caused the boulder to loosen and roll. The road is now open and the Garfield County Sheriff would like to express his thanks to Utah Department of Transportation, Utah Highway Patrol and the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office for their help."
