(BROOKVILLE) - Crews are working this week to stabilize retaining walls along a highway in Indiana after heavy rains caused a collapse onto the roadway.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says work will continue today on U.S. highway 52 in Brookville and likely will continue through next week.

Early last week, a stacked limestone retaining wall gave way - covering part of the west side of U.S. 52 with stone and dirt from the embankment slide. On the east side of U.S. 52, officials say a similar limestone retaining wall bulged following rains.

Traffic has been rerouted around the affected area. An Indiana Department of Transportation contractor is working to secure the embankments.
