The Park City Police Department last weekend responded to several reports spurred by the heavy precipitation, including people who said they encountered rocks that were apparently carried onto the road.
Police officers also monitored streams to make sure they did not jump their banks.
On Sunday, April 27 Rocks reported to be the size of a fist were seen on a switchback along Aerie Drive at 10:25 a.m. The police indicated the rocks presented a traffic hazard. Public police logs did not indicate the precipitation caused the problem, but it is common for heavy rains to bring rocks onto Park City roads.
