Transportation Ministry posts photos of gigantic boulders on BC roads

I stumbled upon the Ministry of Transportation's Instagram account last night and figured I'd share. As you'd expect they post tips on driving safe and photos of infrastructure projects, but what you wouldn't expect is that they post all types of shots that might otherwise be in local newspapers... but aren't quite interesting enough to pay a photographer to go out and shoot. These are mostly photos of boulders in the middle of the road, and it's fascinating to get a glimpse into what the crews see as they arrive to clean up naturally occurring messes on our roads. Check out 7 of them below then follow instagram.com/ministryoftranbc.

Crews are working on Highway 3A to get this rock out of the way. Check DriveBC.ca for updates.
