UPDATE: Highway 70 back open in Hawkins County
A corridor in Hawkins County is scheduled to open Friday afternoon following clean-up and repairs for a massive rock fall.
Tennessee Department of Transportation spokesperson Mark Nagi said Highway 70 North is opening after being closed since May 13. County emergency officials blamed rain-aided conditions to cause the boulders to fall onto the two-lane road.
Engineers were also brought in to insure repairs would address any other possible structural issues in that particular area in the future.
