BENTON, Tenn. (AP) - A state highway crew has cleared a small rockslide in the Ocoee River gorge.
According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/L6dZzE ), the slide was reported early Tuesday morning on U.S. 64 near the TVA Powerhouse No. 2. It blocked one lane of the two-lane highway. A crew cleared away the fallen rocks shortly after daybreak.
A major slide in 2008 closed the highway for nearly two years.
