In October of 2009 a massive landslide destroyed a portion of State Route 410 in the Nile area on Thursday the state department of transportation and the Nile Valley community will celebrate the opening of a new section of state route 410 that eliminates a 20-minute detour through the Nile Valley that was created after the slide.  You can be among the first to drive on the new highway built along the toe of the landslide.

A ribbon cutting  ceremony will be held on the new section of State Route 410, a half mile past the east closure point (north of the wood shed restaurant) at 10 a.m. Thursday.

A number of state officials and local officials will speak at the event.
