After a two-month closure, drivers and local residents once again can travel state Highway 112 near Joyce.

Earlier this month, workers put the finishing touches on a temporary one-way road that reconnects a damaged section of SR 112 at the West Twin River Bridge.

Crews built a 14-foot-wide gravel roadway to allow one-way, alternating traffic through the area. Each direction of Highway 112 is signed, alerting motorists of one-way traffic and a reduced speed limit of 25 mph.

The $90,000 temporary roadway, constructed by state Department of Transportation maintenance crews, is funded by the Federal Highways Administration. Project costs include material, equipment, labor and roadway maintenance until a permanent fix is made.

Highway 112 closed Jan. 8 when a massive slide buckled the pavement and dropped the roadway as much as 8 feet in some places.

For safety reasons, crews could not access the area until recently.

The transportation department is working on design and funding possibilities for a permanent solution.
