TABIONA, Duchesne County — A northeastern Utah highway has opened one week after a clogged culvert created a 40-foot-wide sink hole that killed a teenage girl.

Utah Department of Transportation spokeswoman Tania Mashburn says state Route 35 near Tabiona is now open for travel.

The road collapse happened just before midnight on July 13.
