Md. to fully reopen highway closed by mudslide

Wednesday - 6/27/2012, 12:21pm  ET

THURMONT, Md. - The Maryland State Highway Administration says it's fully reopening a state highway in the Catoctin Mountains that was closed by a mudslide 14 months ago.

The agency says Route 550 north of Thurmont will reopen Wednesday afternoon.

The road was closed after a mudslide in April 2011. It reopened to one-lane alternating traffic with a traffic signal last June.
