Boulder that destroyed Colorado highway blasted apart by construction crew

One of the massive boulders that left a highway in Colorado impassable was blasted apart Sunday as construction crews worked to reopen the roadway.

The Colorado Department of Transportation said on Facebook the boulder that sat on Colorado Highway 145 and was estimated to weigh 2.3 million pounds was blown apart by construction crews.

"CDOT officials are extremely pleased with the outcome," the agency said in a video showing the blast.

CDOT said that trucks immediately started hauling the fragments away so crews can begin constructing a temporary roadway in order to reopen the highway for traffic.

A photo posted by the agency showed pieces of the rubble as workers surveyed the scene.

Imagine driving down that highway and having to dodge it or not seeing it coming down
