PUSHMATAHA COUNTY, OK-- U.S. Highway 271, just south of Clayton in Pushmataha County, was reopened Friday, 17 days after it cracked due to shifting soil.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation shut down a section of the highway after the road shifted, causing large cracks.
ODOT officials say it's been an ongoing problem for nearly a decade and hope this time, they've fixed the problem for good.
The reconstruction was originally expected to take about 40 days, but after striping work and guardrail installation Friday, all lanes are back open.
