— All lanes of Interstate 40 West near mile marker 7 in Haywood County reopened early Tuesday after rocks slid onto the road Monday evening. 

Engineers closed the right lane of the road for several hours while crews worked to clear an estimated 50 truckloads of debris. 

It wasn't clear what caused the slide.
