Both lanes of Route 85 in Boone County in the Bull Creek area near Van are blocked after a rockslide.

A dispatcher with Boone 911 said the slide occurred about 11 a.m. Thursday.

Crews hoped to open the right lane back up at 5:30 p.m.

There was no timetable on the reopening of the left lane. Special heavy equipment is being brought in to clear that lane because the rocks are so large.
