The White Rock rock at the corner of N.M. 4 and Rover Boulevard has been temporarily moved in order to allow Century Link to safely raise a nearby manhole cover up to the existing grade.

Once Century Link completes this work, the rock will be moved back to its longtime location. County Council Vice Chair David Izraelevitz said that the work is expected to be completed and the rock returned to its original spot within three days.
