NY-Vt. road reopens after rock slide repairs

Posted: Updated:

FORT ANN, N.Y. (AP) - State transportation officials say a main route between northern New York and Vermont is open again after work was done to repair damage from a rock slide.

Officials opened Route 4 in Fort Ann, Washington County, on Wednesday. Workers removed additional rock from the slope involved in October's massive rock slide.

The cliff collapsed on Oct. 15, sending 2,000 tons of rocks and boulders onto 200 yards of roadway. The falling rocks narrowly missed several vehicles and nobody was hurt.

Drivers may still encounter brief, single-lane closures during daytime hours as guide rails are installed.
