    Updated:

    MATTHEWS, N.C. - Troopers asked drivers to avoid a portion of Interstate 485 in Matthews Monday afternoon because large rocks were all over the road.

    Drivers swerved around the rocks on the outer loop of I-485 between East John Street and East Independence Boulevard for about an hour before they were cleaned up.

    The road was cleared just before 1:30 p.m.

    It's still unclear how the rocks ended up in the road.
