LITWAR - Crews cleared the scene of a McDowell County roadway following a recent rockslide.

County Route 1 between Litwar and the intersection of U.S. 52 is now open, according to Carrie Bly with the Department of Transportation. The roadway had been closed since Sunday morning after a large boulder was in the road.

The roadway was cleared around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday and a crew patrolled the area through the night as a precaution to observe the hillside and ensure stability, according to Bly.
