OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma transportation officials have partially reopened one of the busiest thoroughfares in the state following a rockslide caused by a tropical depression.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation announced Sunday that Interstate 35 northbound in Murray County has reopened after being closed Thursday. Workers have rerouted northbound traffic onto a single southbound lane, freeing one lane in each direction.

The speed limit in the area has been reduced to 50 mph while crews work to repair damage from the Arbuckle Mountains rockslide caused by Tropical Depression Bill. Officials say drivers should expect delays for weeks while repairs are made to stabilize the rock walls along the interstate.
