Bear Report

I-40 Rock Slide

2/8/2012 - By Donn Tisch

Rock Slide on I-40
There has been another couple of rock slides on I-40 near the North Carolina/Tennessee state line. First reports had both westbound lanes closed by a rock slide between mile markers 450 and 451 due to recent heavy rains making the mountain side unstable. Boulders as big as small cars were piled up on the roadway making it impassable.
It appears things were not quite as bad as first reported and that they have already cleared one lane and you can now get through there once again, albiet with delays. Expect it to take some weeks before the roadway is completely reopened as they will have to do some work remove material from the mountain side to make it safe again.
To find a alternate route just use Google Maps!
