Dec. 4, 2014

major routes back open to traffi c. U.S. 36 was the first

permanent repairs following the natural disaster. The first

phase of the project, completed in May, included the stabilization

of embankments above and below the highway

and near the river in addition to shifting the alignment of

U.S. 36 away from the body of water.
