4TH OF JULY PASS, Idaho -

One lane of traffic has been reopened following a rock slide on Interstate 90 near 4th of July Pass.

The slide happened around 10 a.m. Thursday in the westbound lanes, 13 miles east of Coeur d'Alene.

Officials with the Idaho Transportation Department say heavy moisture from freeze/thaw cycles caused the hillside to give way. They say there were no warning signs that the hillside was unstable. 

No one was hurt and there are no reports of damaged vehicles.
