I-40 In NC Reopens To Limited Traffic

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina officials say a stretch of Interstate 40 in western North Carolina that has been closed for six months because of a rockslide will reopen with some traffic limitations.

Officials said both eastbound lanes will be open and one westbound lane would reopen at 6 p.m. Sunday. One westbound lane will remain closed for three miles while workers continue putting in rock bolts and anchor mesh to stabilize the mountainside.

Truck traffic will be restricted to loads less than 12 feet wide in the westbound lane.

The stretch near the Tennessee state line has been closed in both directions since the rockslide Oct. 25.
