CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) - State Route 14 in southern Utah is now completely open after a massive landslide destroyed more than a half-mile section of it last October.Transportation officials tell The Spectrum
they've finished seeding an unstable slope along the road on Monday. The plants are expected to prevent erosion and further slides.
Access on the road was limited during the summer months as crews worked to fix the scenic byway. Kevin Kitchen of UDOT says the paving was completed within the past few weeks.
Residents of Duck Creek say they're hoping tourism will rebound this winter. The town's economy suffered after the landslide, with detours around the damaged roadway adding as much as 45 minutes to drivers' travel time.
