UPDATE: A rockslide temporarily closed Highway 50 Thursday in Grundy County. The affected section was between Altamont to Pelham.

A post on the Grundy County Sheriff's Office Facebook page explained that the rockslide had closed the road and the Tennessee Department of Transportation had been notified.

The road was re-opened to traffic about 4:00am.

Crews from the Tennessee Department of Transportation are expected to break up and remove the large boulders, but traffic is currently unaffected.
