It will take another day to remove the boulder blocking Ky. 15 just north of Jackson, state police in Hazard said Friday afternoon.
The boulder fell around 5 p.m. Thursday during blasting at a construction area.
A crew worked Friday to remove the boulder but told police that the road will not be open until Saturday. Police said they don't know exactly when the road will be cleared; meanwhile, detours are posted.
