The westbound lanes of an Ohio road that has been closed since a massive rockslide should reopen by the end of the week, officials say.

Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation are placing concrete, striping the road and fixing the guardrail.

Crews have been working to remove debris and fix the road after the huge boulders fell Feb. 26 on Route 7.
