Massive boulder blocking traffic in Vernon County

GENOA, WI (WTAQ) - Crews in Vernon County will spend much of their day removing a massive boulder that fell onto Highway 56 near Genoa.

The sheriff’s department said the rock was about as big as a dump truck.

Deputies began directing traffic there about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. No injuries were reported.

It’s just the latest thing that’s blocking several highways in southwest Wisconsin following the waves of heavy rains and floods that have hit the region since last Friday.

Highway 61 in Crawford County was expected to be closed for a few days, after a large mudslide up to 25 feet tall settled on the roadway near Boscobel – which has had its own problems after getting 14 inches of rain during the weekend.
