Hopewell Road at the Interstate 70 underpass was open traffic without any delays Tuesday. The road has been open for the past two weeks, but last week workers were directing traffic in the area, causing minor delays.

The road was closed from September to the early December while the road surface was being lowered, according to a published report in September.

The work was part of a project to widen the Interstate 70 bridges and the Interstate 81 ramps at Exit 5 to Halfway Boulevard. The project is expected to be completed in 2012.

Although the road was clear Tuesday, crews from Pessoa Construction could return to work and around the road at times, and there may be other minor traffic delays in the future.
