The Colorado Department of Transportation will open the open both lanes of Highway 24 over Tennessee Pass Friday at 7 p.m.
Last week, crews opened one lane of the highway to alternating lanes of traffic, and with all work scheduled for completion Friday night, no further lane closures will be necessary between Leadville and Red Cliff.
"We are grateful to Hayward Baker, the contractor, for their hard work to make these repairs so quickly and efficiently," said Matt Figgs, CDOT project engineer. "We want to thank the community of those impacted by the closure for their understanding and patience while we made these necessary safety repairs.
The road collapsed several weeks ago when a sink hole developed under the road.
