New rockslide in closed section of I-40

RALEIGH The section of highway where the slide took place has been closed since a much larger slide October 25.

The new slide happened a mile marker 6.5, about four miles east of the larger slide. It brought down an estimated 500 cubic yards of rock onto the highway.

The largest rock was the size of an SUV, and the material on the highway covers an area 40 feet long and 50 feet wide, officials said.

NCDOT is now preparing a new clean-up plan for the area.
