Highway 70 near Sligo Bridge was closed to all traffic Thursday due to blasting in the construction zone which caused material to accumulate in the roadway.

A TDOT official told WJLE the contractor blasted today and more material got into the roadway than expected. It happened on the Sparta side. The road will eventually be opened to one lane and flag traffic until they can get both lanes reopened.
