More than 2500 dump truck loads of dirt, rocks and debris have fallen on a highway in the North Carolina mountains.

The state Department of Transportation said it will likely be the end of February before engineers can reopen NC-28 in Graham County west of the town of Fontana Dam.

The DOT will spend $1.3 million to remove the debris and stabilize the mountain so another rockslide won't happen.
