|County officials celebrate the opening of 38 Road Hill earlier last month.|
Some small lane closures will remain today and Friday as work continues, but it should be open completely for Labor Day weekend.
Officials two weeks ago noticed that portions of the recently rebuilt highway between Palisade and East Orchard Mesa had begun shifting, creating several large cracks in the road. Since then, the road has been down to one lane as contractors work around the clock to repair the road damage and rebuild the sinking retaining wall.
Repairs are 100 percent complete on the road and about 80 percent complete below. That work should be finished in about a week.
The road was dedicated earlier last month, several days before work began on the repairs.
