In a heartwarming display of compassion, Graniterock's construction crew working on Highway 17 became unexpected heroes for a furry friend in need.

While grinding and paving early Monday morning near Glenwood Drive, the team encountered an unexpected visitor – a giant gray bunny that had hopped onto the shoulder of the busy highway.

With quick thinking and a keen eye for animal welfare, the crew promptly contacted the California Highway Patrol officer on site, who was overseeing the project's lane closures.

The officer took action, ensuring the rabbit was safely captured and transported to an emergency veterinarian in Santa Cruz for proper care and evaluation.

This act of kindness showcases Graniterock's commitment to not only excellence in construction but also to being responsible stewards of the environment and its inhabitants.

The crew's willingness to go above and beyond their duties to protect a vulnerable animal demonstrates their genuine concern for the well-being of all living creatures.

Graniterock extends its gratitude to the construction team and the CHP officer for their quick response and compassionate actions. difference.
