THURMONT, Md. (AP) — The Maryland State Highway Administration says the second lane of a mountain road in northern Frederick County could reopen by June.

Route 550 was closed on April 16 after heavy rains caused a mudslide that made the adjacent slope unstable. The nearly three-mile closure was north of Thurmont between Eylers Valley Flint Road and Kelbaugh Road.

One lane of the winding road was reopened this past June. The Frederick News-Post reports that the highway administration says it will make permanent repairs to the road, and that the other lane could reopen by the summer. However, the agency says winter weather could delay the work.
