Westbound traffic on I-90 is restricted to a single lane due to a rock slide on 4th of July pass, according to Idaho State Police. 

The slide happened 10 a.m. Thursday in the westbound lanes, about 13 miles east of Coeur d'Alene, near mile post 31. 

Idaho State Police say one westbound lane of I-90 will be blocked for up to 3 days while they clean up and assess the hillside.

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.
