(KSL News) -- A rockslide has closed a stretch of the main highway in Zion National Park.

The rocks came down on the highway switchbacks west of the Zion Mt. Carmel tunnel. Some of the boulders are so big that crews are using dynamite to break them up.

The road should be cleared sometime tomorrow.

Visitors can enter the park from the west entrance through Springdale, but the east entrance will be closed until the rockslide is cleared up.
