Crews clear most of latest I-40 rock slide in NC


COVE CREEK, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina transportation crews have



removed



nearly all the 600 tons of rock that fell on to Interstate



40 in North Carolina



just three days after a mud and rock slide in



eight miles away in Tennessee



closed the westbound lanes of the



highway.


Crews from both states hope to have I-40 westbound reopened by



Monday,



but they warn this weekend's rain and storms could delay



the schedule. The



eastbound lanes of the interstate have not been



affected.


The mud slide in Tennessee happened Tuesday in Cocke County just



over



the state line, while the Friday rock slide in North Carolina



happened around mile marker 7.


A massive rock slide on I-40 in North Carolina in October 2009



closed the interstate for six months.
