Most of Highland reopens

INVERNESS _ Construction workers reopened all but one block of Highland Boulevard to traffic Thursday, City Manager Bruce Banning said. The closing of part of the road for construction has been causing tie-ups on State Road 44 in Inverness.

Parts may be closed again for a day or two to put on a final layer of asphalt, he said. Completion is scheduled for early April.
